The Treehugging Outdoorsman


Living up to its name (Yoho means magnificent in Cree word), Yoho National Park in the British Columbia rockies is one destination that one shouldn’t miss in their lifetime. In a recent trip in this national treasure, I’ve never seen such a spectacular scenery such as the mountains coated with glacial ice, emerald clear water, magnificient waterfalls and a lake surrounded by wildflower meadows. True enough, mountaineers, hikers and campers like me can’t find enough superlative words to describe the beauty we are witnessing upon seeing the park.

Upon arrival, I immediately scanned the maps and guidebooks the park is offering, talked and asked the staff members of the best thing to do and how to do it. Accomodation is easy enough as lodges can be found nearby. I took first the path trail between Lakes O’Hara and Oesa because it is said to be the most popular and has the prettiest scenery although on peak seasons can be quite as busy.
