Vantage Point: From near Bow Glacier Falls trail

Caption: This fallen rock bridging a canyon is part of the route to the Bow Hut from Bow Lake.

PhotoDescr: 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. At the junction where the Bow Hut route leaves the trail, a large rock has fallen across the deep and narrow slot canyon carrying the meltwaters of the Wapta Icefield to Bow Lake. Ski tourers and climbers heading for the hut climb up and over this rock to cross the canyon.
