Sunwapta Lake

Sunwapta Lake lies at the foot of Athabasca Glacier (Columbia Icefields). On the far side of the photo you see Highway 93 / Icefields Parkway. Just a short distance north of this lake, the Icefields Parkway heads across Sunwapta Pass. The pass is the dividing line between Jasper and Banff National Parks.
