Takakkaw Falls, Yoho NP, BC, Canada

Takakkaw is said to be the Cree Indian word for "awesome" and it truly applies to this falls. The stream is born from a glacier. It runs a mere quarter of a mile, then plunges straight down more than a thousand feet into the Yoho Valley. A protruding ledge near the top makes the water explode out from the cliff face before falling free almost to the base.
