Yoho National Park, British Columbia

Travel Diary

After driving through Glacier National Park and Roger's Pass we arrived in Yoho National Park. The drive continued to be very scenic and entertaining. There were lots of winding roads up and down to keep driving interesting.


We were looking for good campgrounds in the area to camp at and there were a few to choose from.
We continued driving towards the National Park Campground.
We made it to Kicking Horse Campground which had showers and washrooms. It was under $30 to camp there so cheaper than some of the other campgrounds we were finding.
It was self registration so we had to fill out a form with our credit card number to pay for the site and put it in a payment box since we didn't have any cash.
One of the campers was driving out of the campground and told us that there was a Grizzly Bear roaming around the campground and to be careful. 
We made sure to keep our eyes out and be bear safe with all our food. It was a really nice campground but it was pretty busy. We went for a walk down to the river.

The scenery at this campground was beautiful.

Back at the campsite we cooked dinner and made a fire. Unfortunately just as the fire was going it started to rain a little bit.
The rain wasn't too bad and we were still able to stay by the fire for awhile.
We cooked our food with the butane stove and then made sure to get all our food packed up and in the truck so that we didn't attract any bears.
A park ranger came around to tell us about the Grizzly Bear sighting in case we hadn't heard. He was just letting everyone know so that everyone was being bear safe and not leaving out any of their food or other stuff with scents.
We slept in the truck as it was raining and there was a Grizzly roaming around. The next day we stopped by Emerald Lake which is close by.
Emerald Lake is beautiful and we enjoyed getting pictures of the gorgeous water.
There was a few other tourists there as well getting pictures and seeing the sights.

This had to of been one the best places we had seen so far in BC.





Nearby there was a waterfall so we stopped to take a look.

The colour of the water around here is very unique.

The waterfall made a little land bridge.
After checking out the waterfall we carried on our journey towards Banff.

It's hard to know what to take pictures of because all of the scenery around he looks picture worthy.
