To narrow it down a bit, I'm in Canada.

Bringing the the game photo onto the current page.
What North American valley am I in?

Sunwapta Valley from near the Glacier Skywalk, Jasper NP, Alberta Canada

Previous clues:
I'm heading to a spectacular, vertigo inducing, man-made view point about 5 minutes walk behind me.
A well known glacier and major ice field are nearby.
To narrow it down a bit, I'm in Canada.

New clue - I'm in the province of Alberta.

I was looking for the name of the valley but I'll pay that norts.
The Glacier Skywalk (Columbia Icefield) is a few minutes walk behind me; worth visiting but full of tourists.
This is the Sunwapta Valley. Over to you.

Thanks John. I only worked it out from all your clues. This is in the US, just.

Not much happening here. I suppose I had better give another clue. I am on my first day on the CDT.

I walked about 5 km down the valley in the background to get here and there is a well known glacier behind me.
