I first arrived at Sunwapta Falls in Jasper National Park, thinking that it was on my way to Athabasca Glacier in the Rocky Mountains of Canada — and that I can sneak in a quick stop…
Sunwapta Falls is Worth a Quick Visit
…but the area was under construction at the time and closed to visitors — so I proceeded to the glacier. After drinking delicious glacier water while I was out on the ice — and then going to the Glacier Skywalk afterwards — I headed back towards Jasper on Icefields Parkway to see a few sites which I had initially passed.
The good news was that the construction was done and the entrance to Sunwapta Falls was opened to the public again.
Another option existed in which one can hike down to the falls; but that would have taken too much time.
