Day 3– Maligne Canyon

For our third day of hiking, we decided to hit the best slot canyon in Jasper National Park.  Maligne Canyon abruptly slots up into some very tight narrows from the top and then continues downstream that way for a couple of miles.  The narrows have to be viewed from above since the canyon is filled with rushing water and waterfalls.  It is a very pretty hike but crowded with tourists.  Here are a few of my pictures from our hike, which we did from the upper parking lot down to the 6th bridge.  I am not sure if I am going to do a trip report on this area yet or not.  But it is well worth visiting.
