Leaving Canmore behind, we decided to drive back into British Columbia over Kicking Horse Pass to see the Takakkaw Waterfall in the Yoho National Park. Once again there were massive roadworks taking place making it a slow trip. We headed to the Kicking Horse Campground where there was plenty of free space. On enquiring about taking the motorhome to the waterfall the Ranger told us that we would have to reverse up the switchback due to the length of the motorhome. Um, no, that’s not going to happen! So we contented ourselves with a nice quiet day instead.
I think this little guy is a woodchuck aka groundhog, a member of the Marmot family. So cute!
It was a damp, drizzling day, not inviting for a walk. Nevertheless, Erich decided to do the “Walk-In-The-Past” Trail, a 5.2km return walk to a disused railway track rising 141 metres along the way.
Crossing the current railway track along the way.
