Vantage Point: From Bow Glacier Falls trail

Caption: From the shorelines of Bow Lake, the Bow Glacier that feeds it and Bow Glacier Falls are both visible.

PhotoDescr: From the left, part of Crowfoot Mountain, an unnamed peak, the Bow Glacier, Portal Peak, and Mount Thompson are in view. In the right foreground is a shrubby cinquefoil, a member of the potentilla family, and common throughout the Rockies.

On the third day of the 2005 August long weekend, I led a club group on the relatively short and gentle hike back to the 120 m Bow Glacier Falls.

The trail is a very popular half-day hike from Num-Ti-Jah Lodge. The first part of the route is the same as the access to Bow Hut, the Alpine Club of Canada Hut that is a base for climbing and ski-mountaineering in the Wapta Icefield.
