Glaciers. Jasper National Park has them. One of the smaller glaciers is Cavell Glacier on the edge of Cavell Pond. Cavell Glacier is next to the larger Angel Glacier and the two share their ice with Cavell Pond.
Both glaciers can be seen by hiking the Path of the Glacier Loop, a 1-2 hours hike from the trailhead on Cavell Road. The Cavell Meadow trail continues from the Path of the Glacier trail and will bring a Jasper National Park hiker past more views of the glaciers.
Seeing the icebergs from Angel Glacier and Cavell Glacier floating in Cavell Pond is a wonderful reward for the hike. Many Jasper National Park hiking visitors have photographed this phenomena. Here’s a selection of beautiful photos of Cavell Pond glacial ice:
As a frame of reference, this photo shows the scene with Angel Glacier (a topic for another day!) spreading its wings above Cavell Glacier and Cavell Pond.
As can be seen from the pictures from several photographers, every day is different on Cavell Pond.
