Brief Directions

Take the Emerald Lake turn off on the TransCanada highway just west of Field, BC. The falls are just beyond the beginning of the Emerald Lake road.

Notes

The Kicking Horse River has eroded the soft limestone of the Chancellor formation to create a natural bridge. The turquoise color of the river comes from the glacial silt suspended in its waters. This scene was shot using slow shutter speeds at large f-stop (small aperture) and a sturdy tripod with cable release. Caution: Don't fall in because there are no second chances! It is difficult to avoid large and frequent tour bus groups at such optimal time of year!

Description

This scene shows the Kicking Horse River just before it plunges down under its natural bridge. Mt. Dennis is in the background.
