Jasper Park's major river flows north with Pyramid Peak in the distance rising slightly above the low clouds.

"The Athabasca River travels 1,231 km (765 mi) before draining into the Peace-Athabasca Delta near Lake Athabasca south of Fort Chipewyan. From there, its waters flow north as Rivière des Rochers, then joining the Peace River to form the Slave River that empties into Great Slave Lake and discharges through the Mackenzie River system into the Arctic Ocean." Wiki

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments, faves and suggestions!

Have a wonderful week!

The Toad River flows by a backwater lake under stormy skies. Rivers and lakes everywhere in northern British Columbia. With frequent stormy weather. Moody and magnificent.

Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday!

I posted an image yesterday of that appealing pool of water nestled in this basalt and limestone natural bridge over the Kicking Horse river in BC's Yoho National Park. Here's a view providing a larger perspective on the forces of rushing water that formed this geological wonder.

Long ago the river flowed over this formation but later wore down the base and now flows under it.

This was taken in June, when the waters were full of dirt, silt and runoff, turning them brown. However later in the year the more pristine glacial runoff turns the waters a brilliant teal blue. An image from an autumn trip below shows the difference in colors.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

The Firehole river flows calmly and placidly for most of it's route before joining the Gibbon river at Madison Junction. That is until it enters this canyon where it flows fast and loud. This is just one section of them. A 40 foot waterfall is nearby downstream.

An image of the beginning of the Cascades in comments.

"The Firehole River flows through several significant geyser basins in the park to include the Upper Geyser Basin, which contains the world-famous geyser Old Faithful. The river was named by early trappers for the steam that makes it appear to be smoking as if on fire." Wiki

Thanks for taking a look. Always appreciated!
