(My solo road trip of western Canada – Saturday 3rd October)
After leaving Takakkaw Falls, a short drive takes you back down the windy road to a place called “The Meeting of the Waters”.
It maybe a little difficult to appreciate the two different types of water that meet here. The Yoho is sort of milky in it’s presence, this is a result of the rock flour from the Waputik Icefield, the glacier melts and end up in the water. On the other hand, the water from the Kicking Horse River is much more clear, the water here too comes from the glaciers, but the silt contained in the water seems to have more time to settle, its as if it gets sifted before it arrives and then mingles with the water from Yoho.
