This is now Bow Glacier falls

Digital photos taken as repeat photography to emulate the 1902 Vaux family photo; photo taken in 2019, and completed in 2021. The glacial cirque is huge – it takes 30 to 60 minutes to traverse on foot depending on how fast you go. Standing there is to know that that entire area was filled with ice; the traces of moraines and gravel attest to the footprints left behind.
