Columbia Ice Field Glacier Jasper, Alberta, Canada

This immense ancient ice body is fading fast, see it before it's gone. Damn global warming.

The sights along the Jasper-Banff Highway in Alberta are whiplash inducing in their beauty and frequency.  As overrun with tour buses as this place can be, it really is worth seeing.  It is very difficult to visualize the immensity of an ancient glacier, or the effect of the climate on something this large until you see it in person.  Be careful, the crevices have swallowed people.  As the creepy illustrations and warnings on the signs will tell you.

You can pay to ride these monster ice cats up on the glacier with a guide or take a chance in your boots or flip flops for free.
