No trip to Jasper would be complete without a visit to Mount Edith Cavell. I think it is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Rockies.
The road leading to the base of the mountain allows an up close look with every little effort. From the parking area a short hike through a boulder field brings you to the base with the Angel glacier hanging on the north face, The melt water lake with chunks of floating ice gives a chance to hold a piece of ancient ice.
In the afternoon when the glacier is heated by the sun there is usually some ice that calves from the glacier with the noise resound ind through the valley.
For a really great view the hike to the Cavell meadow is a must.
