One of the greatest experiences in my life was visiting Jasper and Banff National Parks in Canada and getting to fulfill a lifelong dream of standing on a glacier. This is the foot of Athabasca Glacier, the glacier that “ate” my glove. This is the foot of the glacier, but you can and I did go with the Olsons on a tour to stand on a point further up. I got to drink Glacier meltwater…and somehow lost my glove in the process. D’oh!
