We made the 80 mile drive through Kootenay National Park today. The park is nice with lots of snow capped mountains and the road basically follows the Kootenay River which gave some awesome views. There were lots of deer along the road but we didn’t see any bear or moose…holding out hope for tomorrow.
We are spending the night at the Lake Louise Park Campground just outside the village of Lake Louise. The campground is a little unique as it is surrounded by an electric fence to keep the bears away.
Tomorrow we drive through Banff Park along the Icefields Parkway which is a 230 km drive to passes 100 glaciers and several waterfalls.
Welcome to Kootenay National Park
Such beautiful water
Notice how the rocks have been smoothed by the rushing water
Yup… The second tire failure of the trip. Bet it’s won’t be the last!
Day 8 – July 25, 2016, 92 miles
