Yoho National Park is located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains along the western slope of the Continental Divide in southeastern British Columbia.  Yoho NP is bordered by Kootenay National Park on the southern side and Banff National Park on the eastern side.  The name Yoho comes from a Cree word expressing amazement.  Yoho covers 507 square miles and is the smallest of the four contiguous national parks that form the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site.  (Source: Wikipedia, Image: Graham Lewis)
