Stutfield Glacier – Jasper, Alberta, Canada
By Carl Silverman
JASPER, ALBERTA (CANADA) – Jasper, Alberta’s Stutfield Glacier, a tongue of the massive Columbia Icefield, pours more than 900 vertical meters (3,000 feet) of cliff face to form a picturesque set of double icefalls that are visible from a roadside viewpoint. The Sunwapta River braids its way through several channels across the broad, gravel flats below. Stutfield Glacier is located 95 km (59.3 mi) south of Jasper and 135 km (84.3 mi) north of Lake Louise.
