Athabaska Glacier

The Athabaska Glacier, and Mt. Athabaska in the background, as viewed from the approximate position of the edge of the glacier one century ago.

The lateral moraine indicates the thickness of the ice at that time.

This small river collecting melt water from the Athabaska Glacier is the beginning of the mighty Athabaska River.
