Johnston Canyon

Anita and I went out for a short winter hike up Johnston Canyon today, and I finally found the 'secret' cave that I've seen so many photos of, but had never been to myself before. SUCCESS! This hike is uber touristy, but the icy wintery conditions keeps the crowds at bay, and the waterfalls are stunning when frozen. Just make sure you bring some ice cleats or spikes.
