Athabasca Glacier

Highly recommended
This glacier is 325sq km/126sq mi Columbia lies along the Alberta-British Columbia boundary. The Athabasca and four other major outlet glaciers (Saskatchewan, Dome, Stutfield and Columbia), as well as smaller ones, flow off the icefield's eastern edge. Meltwater from the icefield eventually feeds into three oceans: the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic.
