The hike up to the Angel Glacier on Mount Edith Cavell near Jasper, Alberta is one of those experiences which takes only a few hours but remains in memory for decades.
Once in the car park hike up to the main observation area, but then continue up over the rubble fields to the rear as if you intended to climb the glacier. You'll know when to veer off the trail and climb to the apex. Sitting on a rock up there with the iced wind on your face puts you in the same mental space as the glacier itself, and without coach access, you're assured of some measure of privacy to enjoy the feeling. Below the melt off glows in a startling shade of silty turquoise. Heaven.

Quite a long and sometimes steep hike to get up to view this, but well worth it after you reach the viewing area! Not far out of Jasper (South). Very interesting to view.

This is a must see when in the park. The drive is amazing with some incredible viewing stops along the way. The hike to the viewing area for the glacier is not too strenuous and is well worth it!

The glaciers were amazing. We had wanted to visit here last year but as part of the ghost glacier had fallen, we couldn't It was worth the wait - it was great. We went on a cold day, it even started to snow while we were there but it was beautiful.

The drive up is not for the faint hearted as the road is a little bendy but it is worth it.
