Natural landscapes: where’s the marble?


Perhaps the name comes from the beautiful hues of the rock base at the top of this canyon, in the glorious Canadian Rocky Mountains. Maybe there’s another reason. But I’ve never heard of marble coming from this location. Still, it makes for a wonderful photo. This entire area was swept by fire about 15 years ago, so all the surrounding forest has been replaced by stark tree trunks and growth in various stages below.
