Kootenay National Park,British Columbia, Canada, is on the “warm” (western)side of the Rocky Mountains, bordered on the east by Banff National Park in Alberta.
In 1922, the Banff-Windermere highway was completed and a 5-mile wide strip of land on each side was designated as the Park. This was the first motor road to cross the Canadian Rockies. It’s very scenic and has everything from mountain ranges,rivers,pristine lakes and valleys and a variety of hot springs. Our trip also included some torrential downpours like this one, with heavy storm clouds overhead and sunshine in the distance. The contrast almost made this a monochrome image without trying!
