Maligne Canyon, Jasper National Park, Canada CM11-05

Description : At an altitude of 1800 metres and ringed by snow-capped mountains, it is both the largest lake in the Rockies and the largest glacially formed lake in North America. The canyon is one of the three places in Alberta where black swifts are known to nest, and the Harlequin duck, endangered in eastern Canada, migrates inland to nest and feed here. Mosses and ferns live in potholes in the rock and fossils of snails, sea lilies and lampshells are found where ripple marks of ancient waves are imprinted on the rocks.
