The largest lake in Jasper National Park, Maligne Lake was only "discovered" by Europeans in the first decade of the 20th century. It's by far one of the most photogenic spots in the area.
The Athabasca River originates in the Columbia Icefield, in Jasper National Park, flowing northwards to the Arctic Ocean. These falls may be only 23 meters high but form a true force of nature.
Maligne Canyon is a narrow and deep (50 metres) slot canyon carved into the Palliser Formation, a limestone layer deposited in a tropical sea some 365-million years ago, outside of Jasper. The mosses and lichens that cover its walls form a colourful canvas contrasting with the milky flow of the river.
