Marble Canyon | Kootenay National Park

Hello friends,

I like hiking, like a lot. However, when you go on 1-3 hikes (depending on the length of them) every day on a 12 day trip, it gets to be a lot! Marble Canyon was a short hike we did right after the paint pot hike from my last post. By this time I was exhausted and delirious! Although, I must say it was a beautiful one!

Once you climb to up the steeper part at the beginning you are basically just crossing over a bunch of bridges over a very deep canyon with water in it. It is actually quite amazing and breath taking. The pictures I took do not do it justice! It actually makes me so mad because I could not for the life of me capture the beauty of this hike!

So many forest fires throughout the national parks. Sadly this area was hit a little while ago, but it is still beautiful!

This canyon is waaay deeper then it looks here. Its the kind of deep that when you lean over the edge to look down you feel sick!

Do not know why, but I was fascinated by this large out of place rock!

Have you ever done this short hike? Or have you ever done the longer ones in this area?!

Until next time,

    Gorgeous pictures. I understand the previous comment. I’m much older than the writer and following these hikes I feel like I haven’t been many places. Must start a bucket list off of your posts.

    Hello Phoenixaay, it is the wildness which I can also feel in these images, the rich and vibrant hues of green Lichen; I can smell the pungent fragrant trees, and feeling the rising mists upon my old weather face. It cool you have discovered bridges to traverse over your awesome wide rivers and crevasses where the wild torrent waters roar far below upon their journey to majestic Canadian lakes and out to sea.

    I once stood upon the back bone ridge of a very high Northern Idaho mountain within the Selkirk Mountains the ridge then void of snow, a flat rock I stood upon only five foot wide, shear drops of many thousands of feet, with still frozen alpine mountain lakes in the month of July, at 7,400 feet above sea level, I stood there in shear awe at the immenseness of the moment and vastness, when out of the corner of my eye in my peripheral vision I was movement, it was a wee sparrow rising and dropping in a vertical waves of forward momentum, and she flew right past my face, we could have kissed she was close to my nose as she turned her little head looking at me so amazed and I peering back at her, smiling, an awe inspired lasting moment, we were both amazed to meet each others acquaintance so high up in the vivid blue sky, and she continued on outward in the heavens. I shall never forget her.

    My Parents were always silent when I achieved impossible feats. You cannot chain down nor cage a heart that truly loves and delights in nature. Thank you for sharing your images and your adventures.
