#38 – Little Indian Falls

April 15, 2017 – After visiting Mistaya Canyon Falls (see last post), we continued up the Icefields Parkway to Saskatchewan River Crossing and turned right (NE) on Hwy 11 towards Nordegg/Rocky.  I planned us one more pit stop:  Little Indian Falls.

This time around some areas around Banff were closed due to bears, but luckily Johnston Canyon’s gates were open for business! I think everyone can find their way to Banff.  Getting there may take some time, depending on where you’re coming from.  From Banff here are the directions to the famous canyon… You can see once you get to Hwy 1A the road eventually…
