  The BOW RIVER "Great Canadian Rivers"
In the beginning, the Bow is a mountain river-with the steady, ice-cold drip of the Bow Glacier, the frosty trickle of Rocky Mountain streams, the breathtaking aqua blue of Lake Louise, the whitewater of the upper gorge, the aspen parklands of the foothills.
In the middle, it is a transition river, with rolling foothills to the west, treeless grain fields to the east, criss-cross bridges, pathways and trails, the towering skyline of Calgary, wide, green valleys and grassy banks lined with cottonwood and spruce.
In the end, it is a prairie river, bordered by endless fields of wheat, barley and canola stretching across the wind-swept plains.
