A classic example of an icefield outflow glacier.
Lateral moraine on "glacier right" (south) side of Athabasca Glacier
Note the debris flow at right.
Sediment-choked and sediment cloaked, this isn't lateral moraine, but the edge of the Athabasca Glacier.
Lovely light on a lovely glacier, with lovely till in the foreground.
Classic till, exposed at Icefields Centre.
