Mt. Edith Cavell is famous for its glacier sculpted landscape and floating icebergs in emerald colored pond below the snow-capped mountain peaks all year round. There are three glaciers feeding into the Cavell Pond: Angel Glacier, Cavell Glacier, and Ghost Glacier. The entire Ghost Glacier rumbled down the cliff into a massive avalanche in August 2012. Signs of the avalanche are still traceable in some parts of the trail. As of today, only the former two glaciers remain.

The hiking trail to Mt. Edith Cavell is short and well maintained. Due to its proximity to the Jasper townsite, this hiking trail is very popular to the local and foreign tourists. Mt. Edith Cavell is actually visible from the Jasper townsite and can be accessed with a short scenic drive along the famous Tonquin Valley on Cavell Road, which is open only during snow free season, usually from late June to October. For glacier and iceberg enthusiasts, Mt. Edith Cavell is a great venue for wedding photography, engagement photos, portrait shots, and family group pictures.

October 13, 2013: This photo was taken on Thanksgiving weekend. I was surprised to learn the hiking trail was still open in October. It's a good idea to phone the Jasper Tourist Information Centre about the trail condition prior to heading to Mt. Edith Cavell, since the Cavell Road may be closed due to snow.
