File:Pine Forest near Athabasca Falls, Jasper National Park (7853823048).jpg
Athabasca Falls is located not too far from the town of Jasper, and is easy to reach and explore. It is on the Athabasca River, which makes a spectacular drop here. The Athabasca River, having originated in the Columbia Icefields less than an hour to the south, flows north to Jasper, then onto the Great Slave Lake, before emptying into the Arctic Ocean in the far north of Yukon Territory.
The waterfall keeps the area rather chilly and damp - and is surrounded by pine forest like this, which would be found only in high-altitude areas back in my neck of woods, Southern California.
