We think of monuments being conceived by human minds and wrought by human hands. This monument was wrought by nature.
British nurse Edith Cavell was executed on October 12, 1915 for helping Allied soldiers escape occupied Belgium. Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park, Alberta, was named for her in 1916. At 3368 metres high, Mount Edith Cavell is one of the dominant peaks at the north end of the Icefields Parkway. A spectacular view on one of the world’s most beautiful drives.
