Cornices of Lake Louise
Due to a very snowy winter and cold early summer, the cornices have thrived this year in the alpine environment and made travel much slower in places. Here they are shown lingering well into September on the northeast ridge of Collier Peak. Famous Lake Louise can be seen below. Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.
