A drive through Alberta and BC turned out to be ‘Waterfalls Day’, but not before meeting some locals along the road.
First stop was Maligne Canyon, Alberta. This very narrow canyon featured a nice waterfalls with numerous erosion ‘pots’ along the river.
After crossing into British Columbia, we found Rearguard Falls. It is noted as the furthest into the mountains that salmon make it from the Pacific Ocean to spawn. Unfortunately we saw none, even though this is the time of year they migrate.
In Wells Gray Provincial Park we found Spahats Falls, taller than Niagara. We thought that was amazing until we continued on to….
Helmcken Falls – 420′ high, nearly 3 times the height of Niagara, with great volume as well.
The water rushing over provided excellent visuals providing a great ending to Waterfalls Day.
