Deadly accident at Athabasca Falls

Posted date: August 12, 2011 / https://www.fitzhugh.ca/author/admin/

… Public Safety Warden Garth Lemke … said the individual went over the very top left-hand side of the falls at approximately 3:15 pm.
…  “It looked like every solid structure in his body had been broken,” … “It wasn’t a pleasant scene.”
In the past 20 years, the park has reported five fatalities at Athabasca Falls, all of the accidents occurring in a similar location. 
… “Chances are the victim died from the impact of the fall into the rocky waters, but hypothermia can also be fatal if a victim survives the fall …”
The area where the individual fell is blocked off by protective railings, along with signage warning visitors to stay back.

Hear the thunder

Jasper Journey – Tangle Creek

Let Your Love Flow / The Bellamy Brothers

Heading for Jasper – paused at Tangle Creek

Tangle Ridge Mountain was named by Mary Schäffer in 1907 for the difficulty that climbers had descending down Tangle Creek from the ridge. The mountain’s name became official in 1935 by the Geographical Names Board of Canada.

Tangle Falls is a multi-tiered cascade that might be the most often photographed waterfall alongside the Icefields Parkway because of its easy access.
