Description Printed verso: "Columbia Icefield, only 60 miles from Jasper town and skirted by the famous Jasper-Banff highway, is the greatest accumulation of snow and ice in the Canadian Rockies. Its great peaks rise to higher than 12,000 feet above sea level and form a tri-oceanic water shed and the hydrographic apex of the contenent. The photograph shows the Athabasca Glacier, a major headwater of the Athabasca River and the Mackenzie River system which empties into the Arctic Ocean.
