West Washmawapta Glacier

August 9th to August 30th, 2007

I helped out a fellow grad student with some of his fieldwork on the West Washmawapta Glacier. You might ask where is the WWG? It is here in British Columbia just west of Banff National Park, between Yoho and Kootenay National Parks. A very pretty spot, with lots of interesting weather.
