Angel Glacier
The jewel of Jasper National Forest, Angel Glacier is a remnant of a retreating glacier on Mount Edith Cavell's north face. ("Angel" is a reference to the glacier's white "wings" of ice. ) Venture to the bottom, and you'll find a small, jade-colored glacial pool called Cavell Pond, where icebergs bob serenely in the water, refusing to reveal the secrets of thousands of years witnessed. The hike from the parking lot itself is quite fascinating, as the paved trail takes you through a lunar rocky moraine. This is an experience to be treasured: At the rapid pace at which the glaciers are vanishing, there may no longer be an angel to see in the near future.
