Since I first laid eyes on Bow Glacier from the Icefields Parkway, I wanted to ascend to its toe. I don’t know why I waited so long. I had been up to Bow Hut in 2009, and imagined the undertaking to reach Iceberg Lake as being more challenging. Little did I know that the only think separating the hoards from reaching this pleasant position is a brief but chilly river ford. Having read other trip accounts, I decided to begin the day with an ascent of Little Jimmy Simpson. I don’t know if I have ever received such a reward with so little toil in the Rockies. Through and through this is a highly recommended outing!
