Just a hop-skip-and-a-jump from Banff National Park is its twin, Kootenay National Park. Last Sunday I found myself off work early, so I decided to take a drive out to Lake Louise for pictures, but found myself distracted by the possibility of going to BC. It was literally right there in front of me, so at the last minute I found myself on the off-ramp and headed to Kootenay.
Marble Canyon is only a few minutes over the BC border and is well worth the drive. Its like a shorter but more dramatic version of Johnston Canyon, with significantly less people. Any time that I have been there, there hasn’t been an overwhelming number of people. Sure, its busy. Anywhere out here is busy in the summer on the weekend, but compared to the tour buses that show up at Johnston Canyon, Marble Canyon was a relief from the masses.
