Twin Falls (& Laughing Falls) – Yoho National Park

Twin Falls (& Laughing Falls) – Yoho National Park

Yoho National Park is full of truly spectacular waterfalls. In my previous post, I showed off the impressive Takakkaw Falls; But if you start from there, you can hike on to both Laughing Falls and Twin Falls.

However on our last visit, we thought it might be fun to rent a boat and go paddling on Lightning Lake. The boathouse by the day use area at the lake will let you borrow a paddle boards, canoes, or kayaks. We hired canoes for a…
