Sulphur Skyline

Our Canadian Rockies series continues with our hike to Sulphur Skyline:

The Sulphur Skyline hike is widely regarded as one of the best hikes in Jasper National Park. Unfortunately this was a very smoky day for us, so I can’t confirm if that’s actually true or not. Without the smoke I’m sure the views are normally quite spectacular. I was, however, quite surprised as to how well my photos turned out - relative to the amount of smoke in the air. I can only conclude that the camera lens is able to cut through the smoke better than the naked eye:
