So You Think You Know Yoho?


YohoCover

Yoho National Park is the latest in Darwin Wiggett’s best selling series How To Photograph The Canadian Rockies. Darwin and Samantha have collaborated on this, the newest. The eBooks are now being published by their website oopoomoo.com .

Yoho is one of the least known yet heavily trafficked of Canada’s Rocky Mountain National Parks. The Tran-Canada Highway bisects the entire park. Safe pullouts are few and many have no good view. Darwin and Sam point out the the best photographic locations from their extensive travels in the park. They detail the sights on each of the few roads within the park.

  1. We’ve trod many of the ‘back country’ trails around Lake O’Hara and I have some of the same pictures. I recognized the locations. O’Hara in Yoho is an incredible outing in any season. KP
