PhotoDescr: The Athabasca Glacier is one of several tongues of the massive, 325 square km Columbia Icefield. It descends between Mount Andromeda and Snowdome. The standard ski route up onto the icefields is the snow tongue on the right hand side of the top of the glacier. The major challenge in taking this picture was framing a shot that didn't show any of the dozens of other tourists on the SnoCoach Tour.
