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.
