Maligne Canyon, Jasper National Park, Canada CM11-03

Description : Maligne Canyon, formed 160 million years ago, is bounded on the northeast by Colin and Queen Elizabeth ranges; to the southwest are the more rounded slopes of the Maligne range. The Maligne River, named by Father de Smet, who attempted to cross the ‘wicked’ river in 1846, cut easily into limestone beds, carving its way down into layers of rock, making a V-shaped valley between the ranges. Waterfalls plunge 120 metres to join the Athabasca River on its way to the Arctic.
