Panther Falls (& Bridal Veil Falls) – Icefields Parkway

We visited when the air was smoky and gross, but it would be even more incredible on a clear day. If you are passing through Yoho National Park, stop and visit Wapta Falls! You can probably tell (from my multiple posts about them) but Marc and I always love hiking to waterfalls….
