Artist's Description

Sunwapta Falls is a waterfall of the Sunwapta River located in Jasper National Park, Canada.

It is accessible via a short drive off the Icefields Parkway that connects Jasper and Banff National Parks. The falls have a drop of about 18.5 metres. Sunwapta is a native word that means turbulent water. It is most spectacular in the late spring when the spring melt is at its peak.

There are actually two falls, a lower and an upper one. The one most people see is the upper falls as access is easy. A short hike away is the lower falls which are also quite interesting.

The water originates from the Athabasca Glacier, and volumes are higher in early summer, caused by glacial meltdown.

It is a class 6 waterfall, with a drop of 60 ft (18 m) and a width of 30 ft (9.1 m) (Source – Wikipedia)
