Tangle Creek Falls – Icefields Parkway

Tangle Creek Falls – Icefields Parkway

Tangle Creek Falls is a pretty impressive multi-tiered waterfall, which is one of the many gorgeous possible stops along the Icefields Parkway (the main road between Banff and Jasper).

We spent the morning (and the previous day) chasing waterfalls in Wells Gray Provincial Park, so you might think we’d have seen enough waterfalls for the rest of the day. But, when I spotted another waterfall on the map, we couldn’t resist a mini stop off to look at the views and take a peek at Rearguard Falls. There…
