Thor and I spent an amazing weekend together in.. you guessed it... Radium. We love exploring all the goodies you can find in the wild. Such breathtaking beauty can always be counted on, regardless of the season in the National Parks.
Fairmont Hot Springs this time of year is gorgeous. It was freely flowing with water where the natural hot springs nest on the hillside above the resort. It was hot and steamy.. and so colorful! Rich lime greens paired with hues of corals, beiges, greys and browns. Together it all danced while the symphony of the water caressed it, providing a never ending magical movement that delighted the senses.
The waters flow out of the hillside and into several carved out stone tubs that are part of the hills themselves. They created this small building for bathers to come and privately enjoy a hot bath. The water flows in, and then it comes out the bottom of the little house, always providing fresh natural hot springs for any patrons who should so choose to use them there.
We spotted a sight to behold on the way out of Fairmont. A mother black bear and her 2 cinnamon cubs foraging for berries on a large mountain ash tree. It really was incredible and I learned alot about how strong the branches of a tree like that can be. It was amazing! Those cubs weren't exactly small, and the tree supported both of them at the same time.
I think this is Kootenay River. Thor and I enjoyed watching the ice flow past us as we breathed in the crisp mountain air and walked along the shore and forest path. Such an amazing place. As you go into BC, it has a sign that boasts "Welcome to BC, the most beautiful place on earth." I don't know if that's totally accurate, but I bet it would give other stunning locations a run for its money.
