Bighorn River, Alberta

The power of falling water! As you drive up to Crescent Falls, you pass the lower reaches of the Bighorn River and can marvel at the canyon created over centuries.

Once you get to the parking area by Crescent Falls, the river above the falls looks benign. The winter of 2015-2016 was extremely dry and it was still early spring so the water level in the river was very low.
