About Weeping Wall
The Weeping Wall apparently pertained to a particular cliff wall where supposedly many waterfalls could be coming down at once under the right conditions.
Well, as you can see from the photos on this page, we didn’t get to see this phenomenon though we did spot a couple of noticeable strands of falling water.
There might have also been a few other harder-to-see waterfalls that didn’t translate well into this photograph.
I guess the right conditions for this wall to weep impressively involved us either being here when the snow would rapidly melt (i.e. possibly late June or July depending on the snow pack and how warm the weather would be) or in the midst of a downpour.
Hopefully in the case of the latter scenario, the clouds wouldn’t be blocking the views.
We were here in September 2010, and we paid attention to the waterfalls during a day when a snow storm was clearing.
So given this ephemeral characteristic, I’d argue the Weeping Wall would marginally count as a legitimate waterfall excursion.
Nonetheless, they did devote a pullout and signpost pointing out this wall so we gave it a little special treatment as a result.
The Weeping Wall resides in Banff National Park in the province of Alberta. It is adminstered by Parks Canada. For information or inquiries as well as current conditions, visit their website.
We pulled over for the signposted pullout for Weeping Wall about 5.5km south of the “Sideways Falls” pullout or 21.5km south of the Icefields Center (home of the Athabasca Glacier and the Glacier View Inn).
The signpost and pullout are on the west side (right as you’re headed south) of the Hwy 93.
Meanwhile, further south from this wall, we saw a couple other cascades that had somewhat higher flow than the strands of the Weeping Wall.
I don’t think these waterfalls had names, but I recalled one was just under 5km further south on Hwy 93 while the other was a little further to the south than that.
The first of these had a signpost pointing out Cirrus Mountain.
