Sunwapta River Valley
Just to the north of the athabasca glacier area (the area which includes our campground) is the Sunwapta river valley. Here the valley widens a bit and there is a marvellous combination of lazy river with meanders and marshes framed by rugged peaks. Away back in the distance the peaks surrounding the athabasca glacier (which itself cannot be seen in this photo) are visible.
