Angel Glacier, Jasper National Park

(4.9/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
The Angel Glacier flows down the north face of Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park, Canada. It is named as such because it has the appearance of an angel with out-swept wings. It was much larger when it was named in the 19th-century, but as with most glaciers worldwide, it is melting rapidly. It is not expected to maintain its distinctive appearance for much longer, and will eventually disappear from the face of Mount Edith Cavell.The glacier is visible from the Cavell Meadows hiking trail.
