Columbia Icefield

Hi everyone! Wow, sometimes life comes up and gives you a shove! All is well out here on the road, just been super busy for the last week and without wi-fi. I’ve missed this blog and all of you though and am glad to be back in touch. I haven’t stopped taking photos though and have been in some beautiful corners of the continent, so without further ado I will pick up right where I left off: this is the amazing Athabasca Glacier in the Columbia Icefields of Jasper National Park, Alberta. The clouds were pretty awesome that day. Check out the cars in the foreground for perspective.
