Natural landscapes: walking the canyon
WINTER IN MALIGNE CANYON, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
This canyon, in the glorious Canadian Rocky Mountains, is a treat to see in the summer. It has several bridges and a number of amazing waterfalls. Making it even better is walking along the bottom in winter. My wife & I joined a tour group and saw massive ice formations like this.
Everyone in the tour group had waterproof boots and crampons – but I still managed to fall once. I was glad to include a fellow tour group member in this photo, just to show the massiveness of the canyon and the ice formation, which is known as the “Queen of Maligne”. Nikon D90, 18-70 mm. lens, tripod.

WILD NATURE POWER.
Thanks! It’s an amazing canyon. 🙂
Looks like an amazing spot. We live in a great country.
Thanks, Brian. What’s so cool about Maligne is you get one amazing view in summer and an entirely different, yet still amazing view in winter. Sweet!
