We pulled over to the side of the road for a few minutes to see the glacier. Unfortunately so much of the glaciers continue to melt so their presence is not the same. However, always cool to see.

Crowfoot Glacier is located near Icefields Parkway and is a very impressive sight. Parking lot is located next to Parkway. Crowfoot is near Bow Lake.

It's a nice little stop when you are along the way. We had some great photo moments here - the (usual) combo of glacier, mountain and lake.

This glacier is easily viewed from the Ice Fields Parkway. It was named because it looked like a crow's foot with 3 talons but now there are only two left because the glacier is shrinking. There is a picture on a board to show you...More

Saw the glacier from the coach itself which looked impressive. There are many glaciers as you drive down from Jasper to Banff on the Icefields Parkway.

Pretty simple place, This place is called Crowfoot Glacier because the glacier used to be in the shape of a Crow's foot. Pretty clever right? But as most glaciers in Banff this one is receding quite quickly. And is only left with 2 our of...More

I just saw this from the coach I was on that was travelling on the Icefields Parkway. It is visually enticing, the more so due to the snow in its upper reaches. The road is a smorgasboard for the eyes, but due to the large...More
