During the winter, Johnston Creek becomes a mass of ice but once the weather warms up, the melt starts to happen at a fairly rapid pace. The water then begins to flow over the rocks through Johnston Canyon making its way to the creek forming beautiful waterfalls along the way.Snow and ice still rest upon the sides of the cliff but that will soon melt causing small waterfalls over the rock ledges. Winter is an amazing time of year throughout Johnston Canyon when all the ice glistens in the sunlight but as Spring nears, the water through the canyon and the creek becomes a picture of another one of nature's miracles.Regions around Johnston Canyon and the creek become a paradise in the winter for ice climbers which need to find a new challenge during the cold days. Unless you are sure of what you are doing, it is best to go with a guide as once the ice begins to melt, the risk of avalanches then become a reality.Johnston Canyon is a tranquil place amongst the wilderness of Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada that must be seen while visiting Alberta. Take Highway 1A for about 23 kilometers west of Banff until you come to the Johnston Canyon trailhead. Follow this trail up to the lower falls of Johnston Creek which is about a three kilometer hike or add the extra two kilometers and explore the upper falls.All of the seasons are spectacular in Johnston Canyon in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada but the ice that builds up along the creek in the Winter is outstanding.Partly frozen Johnston Creek along the Johnston Canyon track in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.
