Fort Steele, BC to Water Fowl Lake Campground, BC

Tuesday, July 12

Today was like mainlining nature. “Can I shotgun mother nature please?…”
The Banff National Park region. AWESOME.
We followed the Kootenai River to Kootenai National Park.

From there the scenery became overwhelming starting with the entrance to the park.

Elevation and Perspective. These adjectives kept popping into my mind. It was almost annoying to come around every corner. We took hundreds of pictures. They all blend together.

Mountains, rivers, bears, castles… I’ll stop writing and get to pictures.
