What people are saying:

Bow Lake is also one of the famous lakes in the Rocky Mountains. It is located on the shore of Crownfoot Mountain, beside Icefield Boulevard (Highway 93) from Jasper to Banff. There is also a convenient parking place just beside the highway, which is very convenient. The water of the lake comes from the Bow Lake Glacier and flows all the way down into the Nelson River, which is considered the source of the Nelson River. Bow Lake is a glacial lake. Melted ice from the Rocky Mountain Crow's Claw Glacier, Bow River Glacier, and Wapda Glacier will all be injected into this lake and evacuated from it, forming the source of the Bow River. At the beginning of October, I passed by Jasper Road Banff by car. I stopped and watched and took a rest. Standing by the lake, the blue lake and the snow-capped mountains in the distance felt refreshed.

Additional Information

Introduction

Bow Lake is situated in the Canadian Rockies. It is one of the famous lakes in the Rocky Mountains, on the shore of the Crow Mountain, next to Highway 93. It is a tributary of the South Saskatchewan River and is considered the source of the Nelson River. Bow Lake has a large viewing platform and parking lot. When it is quiet in the morning, the calm lake reflects the clear mountain peaks. When the boat stirs the lake, a slight ripple adds a layer of ripples to the lake.
