Photo of the Day: Johnston Canyon Trail in Banff National Park

Yes, Johnston Canyon Trail in Banff National Park is a popular hiking trail.

There are a million great photos of the waterfalls and Johnston Creek that show why.

This Photo of the Day is a photo of a fragment of the experience of Johnston Canyon, the edge where the water meets the limestone.  The smaller details can be easy to miss:  the rushing water of Johnston Creek, the jagged limestone rocks along the creek shaped by countless years of erosion, and the plants growing on the rocks.

Now multiply this by a hundred and you’ll get a sense why Johnston Canyon is amongst Banff National Park’s most popular hiking trails.
