Right off the road, this 30 min stop is not to be missed. Unbelievable force of water in river carving big canyons and tremendous falls. You can walk through areas where water previously flowed, now dry. Interesting and beautiful.

We strolled along the bank in front of Alpine Village. Very beautiful scenery. The lake with mountains in the back ground. Everything is Jasper is pure vision!!

We stayed at a wonderful cabin right along the Athabasca River. A beautiful site to wake up to in the morning and walk along its overflowing banks in the evening.

This is such a beautiful and big river, I can see why rafters love it.

This major river was in flood when we were there. Each tributary has a different colour, but the overall river is brown with the spring runoff. The river is in view almost anywhere once goes in the national park.
