Takakkaw Falls 

“Takakkaw” translates to “wonderful” in Cree Native language.
And wonderful it is.
The falls are fed by the meltwater of the Daly Glacier, which is part of the Waputik Icefield

Takakkaw Falls (also spelled Takkakaw) is located in Yoho National Park, near Field, British Columbia in Canada. The falls have a total height of 373 metres (1,224 ft), making it the 2nd tallest waterfall in Canada.
The main drop of the waterfall has a height of 254 metres (833 ft).

We took a lot of pics up here. 

Did you spot the 3 people?

I don’t think they walked up there.

Three Climbers. I admire them, but I ain’t going up there.

    This is another great post on your visit to Banff National Park. These are great pictures of Takakkaw Falls. I was wondering if you visited Lake Louise and Johnston Canyon ?

      I wanted to go up to Lake Louise, but we didn’t get around to it. Johnston Canyon was closed due to Covid or we would likely have gone there.
