Whirlpool River

Oct 18, 2000




The Whirlpool River is a short river in Jasper National Park, formed in Athabasca Pass which collects meltwater from the Hooker Icefield and the Mount Brown Icefield. In this photo, the waters look like thick fog rolling in over the river rocks with the reflections of light shining down creating a myriad of colors throughout. The colors of the sky are nearly identical to those of the water — its almost hard to tell up from down!
