A beautiful scenic canyon pool has attracted this tourist to stop here at this popular natural tourist attraction along the Johnston Creek in the Johnston Canyon in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. This pool contains such vibrant colours of blues and greens and is mesmerizing to look at; it's no wonder that this is a popular spot for people while hiking through the canyon in the winter.

Winter in this region of Alberta can be harsh and temperatures can drop so much that it can be uncomfortable to go outside. However, winter is also beautiful as the way this pool has formed amongst the ice and snow demonstrates. The water in the pool is as clear as glass and it looks so blue that it is almost inviting for swimmers. However the ice and snow at the edge and on the cliffs surrounding the pool tell any viewer that is is much to cold to swim in there during the winter.

Johnston Creek is a tributary of the Bow River in Alberta and it originates in the glacial valleys of beautiful scenic Banff National Park, so the water that flows through here at all times of the year is cold. Although tourists and visitors are welcome here, Banff National Park is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site, so it is protected ground and cannot be developed or changed.

Banff National Park forms part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site.
