Eric and I toured the west of Canada in august/september of 2001. We spent about two weeks camping and hiking in the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks of Banff, Jasper, Yoho, and Kootenay. We did not visit Mount Revelstoke & Glacier.

Apart from the Rockies, we also spent time on Vancouver Island, and in Calgary, Vancouver, and the Kootenays and Okanagan regions.


We didn't get to see a lot of Kootenay, partially because large parts of the park were closed due to forest fires. On our way south from Yoho, however, we spent an afternoon relaxing in the Hot Springs in Radium, just inside Kootenay Nat'l Park. It looks just like a swimming pool, but the water's warm and you don't exactly see people doing laps: everyone just seems to be relaxing around the pool. Watching the people and reading a book were fun, but it's too bad we weren't allowed to eat there.

We stayed at the Misty River Lodge, a youth hostel which also has private suites, on the road from Radium to the park. The facilities were good, and the people running the guesthouse were super friendly.
