JasperNP-Edith Cavell-Credit-Parks Canada
An impressive 3300-metre peak, Mt. Edith Cavell is named after a British nurse executed during World War I for her part in helping allied prisoners escape occupied Brussels. A narrow 14-km road brings visitors close to the mountain's awesome north face, an area famous for interesting moraines, the Cavell Meadows and spectacular views of Angel Glacier. During the summer months, the short day hike to Cavell Meadows is a must-do. Between the backdrop of Edith Cavell and the alpine wild flowers in full bloom, it’s a photographer’s dream!
