Wouldn't this be a great view from your deck?

Takakka Falls is loosely translated from a Cree expression meaning, “It is wonderful.” And it is!

This is one huge waterfall! At 302 m it is the 4th highest waterfall in Canada. Yoho National Park is not far from our home in Calgary, but we’ve never stopped at these falls. I’m not sure why. I’m just grateful that we did stop today. To get to the falls, we had to unhitch the trailer and leave it in a parking lot as the road up to the falls is steep with tight turns. However, it's not a long drive, and the walk into the falls is short. This also means there are a lot of people at these falls. I suspect that we will be back to see these falls on a future trip in the spring when they are at their peak. (And probably earlier in the day when there are less people.)

Come on over!
We thought of you and Diane a lot on this trip. It's too bad it's such a long way, not to mention, a bit pricey. But, keep that dream alive and we'll be here ready to take you on a fabulous trip!

new word for my vocabulary
Takakkaw = It is wonderful - will remember that one maybe! Easier to say than to spell.

There's all kinds of words that I find while travelling that I love, but can't remember, let alone spell!
