Last summer the Ghost Glacier, which was a hanging glacier situated on the North aspect of Mt. Edith Cavell in Jasper, calved off and fell into the glacial melting pond below the mountain. This created a flash torrent which destroyed the visitor's parking area. Parks Canada closed the area last summer and fall. Just before this happened I was up in the meadows hiking and I used a reference photo to paint this landscape (just finished it today) which is looking at the climber's route for the east face ascent of the mountain. The Cavell meadows are extremely fragile and host a variety of montane plant species.

Really enjoy your work. We too were hiking at Cavell just days before Ghost slid off the mountain. Thanks for the beautiful memory.
