Hiking Parker Ridge Trail, Banff

Saskatchewan Glacier

View of the glacier, after the fog lifted.  A short 1 hour hike up and maybe 20 minutes down.  When we arrived it was totally socked in.  We waited it out on the ridge for 2 hours and thankfully the fog burned off enough to experience what is a great view.   When you get to the top of the ridge make sure you continue on, it’s well worth it.

Fog lifting, on our arrival we could see absolutely nothing even though it was clear near Lake Louise, once we hit the Parkway visibility was a couple hundred meters at best.

My wife enjoying the view.
