Sunwapta Falls: Turbulent Waters



Not far from the Icefields Parkway, south of Jasper, is the aptly named Sunwapta Falls meaning “turbulent waters” in the native tongue of the Stoney Indians. 


Originating from the Athabasca Glaciers, the volume of water caused by the glacial meltdown was high in early summer, when we were there.


The small island in the middle of the Sunwapta River just up stream of the falls is, in my opinion, what makes the upper Sunwapta Falls beauteous. 


Make sure to detour to this falls when in the area.  For more Sepia Scenes, click here.
