Memories of the West, Part 4.

Takakkaw Falls, Kicking Horse Pass, Rocky Mountains, B.C., July 2004

Takakkaw Falls is located off the beaten path along the Trans-Canada highway. It is most likely overlooked by most tourists and thus seems to keep its remote natural appearance. The narrow cliff hugging road that winds above the valley is not for the faint of heart. The single “switch back” was an interesting and new experience. But in the end all the danger and excitement was well worth it. You can hear the falls long before they are visible. A river full of rock flour runs along the path towards the falls. Although it is not of the same grandeur as Niagara Falls, the power and beauty of a glacial water fall is awesome. This is a site that must be seen.
