Athabasca Falls & Columbia Icefields - Jasper, Alberta, Canada

From Jasper, we headed south down the Icefields Parkway.
This road was littered with glaciers!


First stop though, Athabasca Falls.



Brooke checking the view from the roof of the car.


Yep, the view is good.



At Columbia Icefield, they have markers out to show the ice melt over the years.
The closet mark was 2008, and was still 50-75 yards away from the icefield!
*NOTE: Yes, climate shift [or "Global Warming"] is natural/cyclical, but it's happening faster than it should.


We were still a half mile away from the icefield, but found a date close to Andrea's birth year!


By the way, right before we left for this trip we found out we're having a baby boy!
We are super excited, and look forward to all of the adventures...with a baby in tow!



Even though it looks like pavement, Brooke is on Columbia Icefield!



Andrea approves!


Brooke grew up with glacial grooves in his cellar, but to see scratches from ice up close is still crazy!



Weeping Wall; a cliff that's wet.


Brooke turned from taking photos to find Andrea looking at paint swatches!
What a designer!



Nursery color choices!


From Jasper, we wound up in Lake Louise for a few days.
Dinner on the grill!

Brooke wouldn't let me climb on top of the car...I don't know why not. and by the way, I was matching the paint swatches to the beautiful hues of God's natural creation!...but nothing can compare.
