Raduim Hot Springs

We are now at the Raduim Valley Vacation Resort in Radium Hot Springs, B. C. This is a very nice RPI park, probably the nicest that we have stayed at. They have very long 50 amp. full service sites, just a little close side to side. Each site has a small cabana with a grill. It is a well kept park with a nice recreation building with pools and hot tub and a nice excercise room. They provide cable tv with a lot of channels. Although they have a wifi hotspot in the rec center, we opted to pay extra for a cable modem which is probably the best internet connection that we have ever had on the road.

We drove less that 100 miles yesterday morning from Lake Louise. It had rained most of the night and still some rain in the morning. We drove through the mountains going from Banff National Park to Kootenay National Park which ended just before the little town of Radium Hot Springs. We saw some fresh snow above us on the mountains. The only wildlife that we saw on the drive was several elk.

Raduim Hot Springs and Invermere a few miles to the south are 2 of the resort towns in this mountain area. Radium Hot Springs is named for the springs in Kootenay Park just up the mountain from the town. We saw something saying that Radium Hot Springs is also the Bighorn capital of B.C. We weren't much impressed until we saw a few of these guys stopping traffic in the middle of town.

We mostly took it easy today, and did a little local site seeing. We have moved every day for 8 days in a row and that is tiring. We plan to stay here two more nights before crossing the border on Monday. We drove into Invermere this evening and had a very good meal at the Oriental Palace.

This gull looks like it is larger than the boat.

The Columbia river seems to be much smaller here than in Electric City, Wa
