YOHO National Park here we go, BC, Canada, sept 2011

Posted by

Our last day in The Rockies before we depart to the East Side tomorrow was spent outdoors again as the weather was perfect, it started at 0 then steadily rose to 10 by midday and we figures about 20 around 3 pm. We went down the Trans Canada Highway to Field back into British Columbia to the Yoho National Park and up the most beautiful valley along the Yoho river and Kicking horse river to Takakkaw Falls

Even from a distance the roar is phenomenal as the water from a Glacier above discharges over a 254 m drop into the Yoho river. This was wild country and everywhere we went were Grizzly bear warnings as they can appear anywhere, but not for us. We were very elevated in this raised valley and the winding road was a sheer delight just cruising at between 30 to 50 km/h .

The water tasted so sweet and pure despite my odd facial and they whole experience was so powerful there was an amazing energy about the place, it had significant spiritual meaning to the first nation people and you can sense why.

  1. Wow what a great trip you must be having. What’s with the bule water, is it because it comes from glaciers?

    1. Hi Bro, yes it has been great and yes the minerals from the glaciers have that effect on the water cheers John
