August 20, 2005 - Takakkaw Falls in Yoho

We drove back into British Columbia to visit Yoho National Park and had lunch in Field, which is inside the park.  Then we drove to Takakkaw Falls.  Here is a view of the falls from the road in and from the parking lot:

Takakkaw Falls was worth going to visit.  It is 17 miles from Field to Lake Louise, so it's closer than Banff which is about 35 miles.
