Athabasca Falls, Jasper, Alberta, Canada
As a former resident of Jasper, Alberta, Canada and former hospitality employee in that town, I am familiar with all that Jasper National Park has to offer.
Athabasca Falls, within an hour's drive from the town of Jasper (the main town in Jasper National Park), is a fiercely rushing waterfall set in the Canadian Rockies. Though not renown for incredible height, the speed and noise of the rushing water will be enough to captivate geologists and tourists alike, as the power of water to break rock is evidenced here. One could spend about thirty minutes to one hour exploring the trails, some of which are actually paths that were carved by the rushing water long ago before the water changed course.
The adventurer to this attraction will be happy to have the following tips: bring a raincoat even on a sunny day, bring ear plugs if you have sensitive hearing, and do not forget your camera. [more]
