If you’re wondering where the Columbia Icefield is located, I took a screen shot of my location on this last trip North. I strongly recommend a trip to the area if you’ve never been before. It’s an amazing area with a dynamic landscape that is being affected by human activity.
This area is of great importance to those of us that call the Pacific Northwest home as a portion of the Columbia Icefield feeds the Columbia River. As knowledge is gained by Mike Demuth’s team through the Mass Balance studies being conducted on the Icefield and it’s exit glaciers more can be understood about the surrounding Icefields and glaciers that feed our fresh water network. The question isn’t if their receding, but how much faster than previously thought.
Here’s closer satellite view of the Saskatchewan Glacier shoot location.
