Maligne Canyon – Jasper, Alberta


Maligne canyon is a must see sight in Jasper National Park.  Jasper Park is situated about 360 KM west of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and can be reached via the Yellowhead Highway (Hwy 16).

I took this shot many years ago (1991?) and is taken looking down into the canyon from the decking that goes through and around the site.  Very impressive place, but only one of many in the park.  On a personal level, Jasper is Banff without the crowds.  In comparison, it is far more natural and focused on preservation.  There is a great ski hill (Marmot Basin), and the standard resort amenities, but has unique charm that I enjoy when we visit.
