Photo: Icy Waterfall Rocky Mountains Canada

This icy waterfall has literally frozen solid in the cold temperatures of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta Canada. What was once a cascading waterfall has turned to icicles in the sub-zero temperatures commonly found in Banff National Park.

This icy waterfall seems to be suspended in time as the temperature drops so low that the once freely flowing water now hangs in glittering icicles over the edge of the Rocky Mountains. Banff National Park in Alberta Canada transforms into a winter wonderland as ice and snow settles on almost every surface as the temperature reaches its winter lows. This waterfall is usually a fast flowing cascade of water but now it looks quite small.

Banff National Park, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, was Canada's first national park and as a result has a special place in the heart of most Canadians. It is known for its beautiful scenery such as this icy cascade which was once a flowing waterfall. With its rolling hills, dense forests, beautiful meadows and stunning glaciers, it is like a snapshot of the world captured in one place. It is also a popular tourist destination no matter what time of year, and is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Snow is a given in the winter and is one of the many reasons people visit once the weather turns cold. Park officials warn that you should always be prepared however, especially in winter as the snow can be so deep in places it is easy to get stuck either in your car or on foot. Avalanches can also be a danger in the winter as the constant snowfall can make the ground quite unstable.
