"The Minute and the Majestic" Kootenay National Park by zrim

Kootenay National Park Travel Guide: 78 reviews and 131 photos

The mountain vistas are fantastic, but I found myself fascinated by all the small growing things underfoot. Add a few bighorned sheep, a moose and a couple deer and Kootenay turned out to be an adventure that I will long remember.

    Had a chance to drive through here on Easter weekend. It was really pretty in early spring...and no tourists to contend with.

    I live relatively close and have not visited. This is definitely a higher priority. Thanks for showing your photos. Your writing also illustrates that you've done your homework. ;) As for Radium Hot Springs - ditto!

    From where I sit that stream is a most heavenly shade of blue. Thanks for a virtual walk on the (Canadian) Wild Side!

    Well I came in search of wolves and bears... found some sheep and a moose from somewhere else, but it was far from a wasted journey! Great stuff Phil, really evocative and great photos.

    Very nice, I've been through the Kootenay valley in Canada and the Kootenai in the USA. Same valley, different spelling. Very breath-taking indeed.

    More temptation and a sad story about a canyon. Worth a visit as always.
