Our drives into and out of Jasper town on Highway 16 (Yellowhead) parallel the Athabasca River. Depending on the location, the river can be on either side of the road, as the highway crosses the river in several places. In the summer, the views may be partly obscured by deciduous trees, but, winter conditions open up the views. No matter how much of a hurry we are in on the drive, we usually take the time to stop and take in the views.
We stopped beside the Athabasca River at the Maligne Lake Road turnoff in November 2013.
…and at several spots in April 2019
