Bighorn River Valley and Crescent Falls

Bighorn River Valley Crescent Falls

About an hour drive west of Rocky Mountain House lies the Bighorn River, that originates in the Alberta foothills of the Canadian Rockies. The river flows under Mount McGuire, travels past several creeks, drops at the Crescent Falls, and then passes through a canyon.

Cline River and Abraham Lake

A little further west (1.5 hours drive from Rocky Mountain House) the Cline River shapes the landscape around the 32 km long Abraham Lake, which was created in 1972 through building the Bighorn Dam. The Cline River originates from Pinto Lake and joins the North Saskatchewan River at Lake Abraham.

Crowfoot Glacier and Bow Lake

Following the Icefields Parkway south (2.5 hours drive from Rocky Mountain House) and entering Banff National Park at an altitude of 1920 m lies the Bow Lake, which is the source for the Bow River flowing south. The glacial lake is nestled at the foot of Crowfoot Mountain which holds the Crowfoot Glacier in the northeast, feeding lake and river with water.

Further south the Icefields Parkway joins the Trans-Canada Highway (3.25 hours drive from Rocky Mountain House) which connects the popular Lake Louise and the resort town Banff. Here is Castle Mountain, a peak with 2,766 m elevation and formed by rock deposits of limestone, dolomite and quartzite, showing a divide between older and younger sediment layers.

Lake Louise on a late summer afternoon

Lake Louise

Following Trans-Canada Highway another 15 minutes (3.5 hours drive from Rocky Mountain House) lies Lake Louise, famous for its emerald colour made by fine-grained, silt-sized sediments of rock, that were produced through glacial erosion and carried into the lake by the water flowing down from the glaciers. That same water drains through the 3 km long Louise Creek into the Bow River.
