Crowfoot Glacier

Image of Crowfoot Glacier from tripadvisor

Crowfoot Glacier, on the flank of the eponymous Mountain, bears the name of Chief Crowfoot. But early explorers also noticed the glacier's  resemblance to a crow's foot, with three toes.

Now only two remain. Visible from the Icefields Parkway that links Jasper to Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies, this glacier is just over 30 kilometres from Lake Louise.
