Beautiful Bow River
The Bow River is long river in the Canadian Rockies from the Bow Glacier and Bow lake and continues to form the South Saskatchewan river.
The colour of the water is due to the high load of glacial flour.
The name "Bow" refers to the reeds that grew along its banks and
which were used by the first nations people to make bows; the Peigan name for the river is "Makhabn", meaning "river where bow weeds grow".
The Bow River is known as a world class trout fishing destination.
