"Tourist town" Radium Hot Springs by Redlats

Lots of motels

Radium is a town just south of Kooteney National Park. Most of the town is actually outside the park, but the actual hot springs is inside.

We enjoyed Radium as it provided a large selection and variety of motels - just for travellers such as us. The theme for many of the motels is the Austrian Alp chalets, so there were many flowers and the motels are all set on hillsides.

Columbia River Valley

Just outside Radium, we took a picture of the Columbia River Valley off Highway 95. We read that this valley is the only remaining wetlands in BC (we still have lots and lots of wetlands in the prairies though).

Hoodoos

Further south on Highway 95 at a place called Hoodoos Mountain Resort, we came across these hoodoos off the highway.

I included the log truck in the picture as these trucks travel constantly on the highways in this area, and we are always a little worried that one of those logs are going to jump off the truck, and hit our vehicle right through our window. (It didn't happen by the way, we made it home).
