After a fun-filled long weekend catching up with friends in Hinton and Jasper, Alberta, Canada, it was time to head back to the big city of Calgary.
The great thing about this is that the way back home traveled on one of the most beautiful drives on Earth, The Icefields Parkway.
One of the first major attraction of this scenic byway is the powerful Athabasca Falls, which inspires and humbles the soul all in one go.
It is a sight to be admired, but from a distance: many people over the years have slipped on the wet rocks and fell to their untimely deaths.
The water is ice-cold and the gorge produces a washing machine-like effect. Appreciate this force of nature, but respect the barriers and don’t get too close!
If you can’t get away to the Canadian Rockies anytime soon, watch the video and feel the cool mist of this glacial river on your face…!
