Yoho NP
Yoho National Park is situated in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The Rockies were created by the Cordilleran orogeny (a mountain forming event) during the Mesozoic/Cenozoic era, roughly 65 million years ago. The Rocky Mountains also mark the dividing line between the Pacific and Atlantic watersheds - quite surprising when you consider just how far west they are!

The name "Yoho" is derived from the Cree word for "awe", as you can see it was aptly named :) When this shot was taken it was a balmy -18°C/0°F, surprisingly the water was still flowing down the middle of the canyon although it did contain a fair amount of ice.

Yoho National Park was established in 1885 and is a UNESCO listed World Heritage site.
