Columbia icefields, Icefields Parkway, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada 01

Description : The Columbia Icefield is a surviving remnant of the thick ice mass that once mantled most of Western Canada,s mountains. Lying on a wide, elevated plateau, it is the largest icefield in the Canadian Rockies. Nearly three-quarters of the park,s highest peaks are located close to the icefield; ideally placed to catch much of the moisture that Pacific winds carry across the British Columbia interior. Most of this precipitation falls as snow; up to 7 metres a year!
