So apparently there’s a little bit of snow in western Canada! This photo was taken in Glacier National Park in the province of British Columbia and shows a train rumbling through snow banks as high as the train itself!

Glacier National Park is one of seven national parks in British Columbia, and is part of a system of 43 parks and park reserves across Canada. Established in 1886, the park encompasses 1,349 km2 (521 sq mi), and includes a portion of the Columbia Mountains. It also contains the Rogers Pass National Historic Site. The park’s history is closely tied to two primary Canadian transportation routes, the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), completed in 1885, and the Trans Canada Highway, completed in 1963. [source]
