Nigel Pass

By July 7, 20092 Comments

We spent a cruisy day driving the Icefields Parkway from Jasper to the Athabasca Glacier/Icefields Centre (see the shots in this post), stopping for the night to camp near the glacier at a provincial campground. Next day we thought we’d contemplate nature at walking speed for a change and hiked up to Nigel Pass (roughly 2200m). Brooding clouds on a far range finally enveloped us soon after we got to the pass, and we ate our lunch hiding in a hollow from the wind while snowflakes landed and melted around us. Quite a change from the deserts of Shaka and Kamloops. [hover for captions] Nigel Pass, Icefields Parkway
