The walk through Johnston Canyon to the upper and lower falls is relatively easy and provides fantastic views of the raging mountain river down below. Johnston Canyon Upper Falls is a spectacular 40m (131′) waterfall in Banff National Park, while the smaller Lower Falls are also quite beautiful. Another photographer tipped my mom and I off to this special place in Johnston Canyon. I could’ve worked it photographically for hours, but I only had 45 minutes. There were so many more “National Geographic” shots I could’ve taken, and I hope one day to return and capture them.
Banff National Park in Alberta became Canada’s first national park in 1885 and offers spectacular scenery of the Rocky Mountains, including snow-capped peaks, turquoise glacial lakes, valleys of wildflowers and verdant green forests. It is home to many animals such as grizzly bears, mountain goats, cougars, moose, beavers and bighorn sheep. The nearby township of Canmore lies outside the park’s borders but nonetheless offers the same spectacular scenery and wildlife.
Some of the best known natural areas of Banff National Park include the Bow River Valley, Lake Minnewanka, Plain of the Six Glaciers, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and Johnston Canyon Falls. These are just some of the scenes that can be taken in through Banff’s 1600 km (994 miles) of hiking trails.
