Mt Edith Cavell is simply put one of the absolutely most fantastic places to be on the Planet Earth.
It's only open a few months of the year (late June to mid Sept), and no busses are allowed up. Located just a 45 minute scenic drive both from Sunwapta Falls Resort and Jasper (it's sort of in between us!), Mt Edith Cavell is named after a WWI nurse who was an accomplished nurse credited for the launching Belgium's first nursing journal as well as leading nursing training in several hospitals and kindergartens.
Cavell was an unmitigated humanitarian and during her time as a nurse in the Great War, she treated patients from any side.
She gave her life treating an estimated 200 Allied troops along with persecuted Belgian men and helping them escape from German occupied Belgium to the Netherlands and Britain.
Cavell was famous for her statement that "Patriotism is not enough.... I can't stop as long as there are lives to be saved." It is fitting that her name be married with the Angel Glacier.
While there is an optional 8km hike through the Cavell meadows, this video depicts the shorter walk to the spectacular glacial pool at the foot of the "Angel Glacier".
This is an amateur video (obviously!) taken by our staff at Sunwapta Falls! Thanks gang :)
