Love waterfalls and Athabasca had a few of them all different sizes, all fabulous to see. Walked a bit which was beautiful with cold air in our faces and outstanding views. Beautiful.

cold and snow greeted our excursion to the falls watch out for ice and they do not put out any salt or sand to make things less slippery however the falls were breathtaking just prepare for crowds of people even in a snowstorm

His waterfall is worth stopping on your way to/from Jasper. You get amazing viewing angles from the waterfall.

We went in October, which our guide said is when the water regains its turquoise color. So happy we did -- it's utterly lovely.

From the falls you can follow the canyon. There is a shorter trail and a longer one for the more active. Saw some birds and squirrels on the way.
