Balance iPhone on rocks in gusty wind, click button to activate self timer, jump off rocks, skid back under protective railing, scoop up toddler and sprint to end of cantilevered platform 300 ft over river. I'm here to tell ya, folks, it just can't be done in the 10 seconds the iPhone gives you. Still an amazing view from several high platforms just a short walk from the campground at Sulphur Gates Provincial Park north of Jasper. Upstream, the more gentle Sulphur River changes course when it hits a dense wall of rock, the shore of an ancient lake tilted upright as the Rockies formed. It flows along this wall, trapped behind it until the more powerful Smoky River blasts through the wall at Sulfur Gates and consumes it at a tee. #airstreamtoalaska #alberta #sulphurgates
