Crowfoot Reflection - Banff National Park, Alberta

Bow Lake, Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park, Alberta

One good thing about the Icefields Parkway is that there are outstanding scenes that are mere steps from the road. Crowfoot Mountain, pictured here, is an example of what gems you will find along this 140-mile road. The mountain is part of the Canadian Rockies and measures just barely above 10,000 feet. The mountain get its name from the adjacent glacier that resembles the feet of a crow. 

I took this photo about a year and a half ago in June. The waters were pretty calm for the time of day. Just days before, the lake had a melting sheet of ice on it that precluded any thoughts of a reflection on Bow Lake. I have aways wanted to stay overnight at the lake at the Nun-Ti-Jah Lodge. Another reason to go back to Banff.
