Athabasca Glacier, Alberta
Montagnes Rocheuses - Alberta

The Athabasca Glacier, situated between Jasper and Banff in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and is part of the Columbia Icefield. The size of the glacier has reduced substantially over the past one hundred years. The scaring from the terminal moraine can be seen in the rocks at the bottom of the panorama. This has been exposed as the ice in the glacier has retreated.
