Natural landscapes: the flow of the Bow


By the time it reaches Calgary, about 250 kilometres to the east, it’s a wide, significant river. But near Lake Louise (where this pictures was made), the Bow River is just 50 kilometres from its source. That means the it has yet to add water from assorted streams, creeks and rivers, so it’s a much more human-sized river.
