It's a nice little stop when you are along the way. We had some great photo moments here - the (usual) combo of glacier, mountain and lake.

This large glacier can be seen from the Icefields Parkway and there isn't any need to stop unless you want to photograph it. There is a convenient view point and we thought that it was well worth taking a few minutes to look at it.
