Bow Falls

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 10 October 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

Bow Falls is a major waterfall on the Bow River, Alberta just before the junction of it and the Spray River. They are located near the Banff Springs Hotel and golf course on the left-hand side of River Road.

The falls are within walking distance of the Banff Springs Hotel, so they are visited by many tourists despite their relatively small size.

The 1953 Marilyn Monroe film River of No Return featured the falls.

Bow Falls was not the largest or most impressive falls we saw, but it was a wonderful spot of our picnic lunch that day.

Magnificent falls. All we need is Marilyn Monroe and Robert Mitchum

It looks quite beautiful and probably made a lot of noise, too.

that's a lot of water flowing over that cascade. most of the tourists seem more interested in each other than in the falls.
