On the way home from Canmore, we took a drive up the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) to see the Athabasca Glacier, Tangle Falls, and the Mount Kitchener Viewpoint. This might be the last time we visit the Mount Kitchener Viewpoint as that is the site the Brewster will construct their private 'Glacier Walk' (i.e. glass-bottomed tourist walkway) beginning this spring.
