As we left Revelstoke, we passed through the Canadian Glacier National Park. The park is quite impressive, but almost all the hiking trails were closed due to excessive snowpack. These photos show our views from the vehicle as we traveled through Glacier. Impressive.
Canada is big avalanche country. In the mountainous regions of Canada, you can see the devastation of avalanches almost everywhere. Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park has some of the most intense avalanche control systems in place on the planet. Here we see a concrete Howitzer platform that is used to induce controlled avalanches all along the Trans-Canada Highway through Glacier. There are at least a dozen of these platforms, maybe more. The 2nd shot above is a life-size model of the Howitzer shells used to control avalanches through Rogers Pass. This picture was taken at the Glacier Info Center.
Here's another shot of the beauty of Glacier (1st photo). The 2nd photo shows one of the many "snowsheds" that exist both over the highway and over the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks that also pass through Rogers Pass. These snowsheds protect portions of the road/tracks from avalanches.
