Part of the Beauty

Just a few vistas of our recent non-backpacking trip.

What’s amazing about water?  It can be still, violent, gentle, warm, cold, hard.  And in each type there is a beauty.  We haven’t even gotten into the scientific perfection of water!

The amazing blue glacier water of the Kicking Horse river.

Takkakaw Falls bursting over the cliff and shooting out from hitting the rock promontory part of the way down.  It’s very loud standing up there.

Climbed from the base of the rubble, halfway up the rock to the base of Takkakaw falls.  This is the view looking down over the Yoho Valley.

Through the trees over Moraine Lake.

    Looks like a fabulous trip! We just drove through the Rockies last week too – but we stayed in the car 🙂 I hope to get back to Moraine Lake again this year!
