Around The World - Takakkaw Falls, BC

Nothing captures the awe and wonder of Yoho National Park like the tremendous thunder of Takakkaw Falls. Plunging from above at a height of 380m (1246 ft ) with a 254m ( 833 ft ) freefall, Canada's second highest waterfall leaves every visitor humbled. Fed by the Daly Glacier above, Takakkaw Falls' flow is at its peak in July when glacial meltwater is running freely.
 
This video was made in July, 2006, in Yoho National Park, BC. and it would not have been possible to show you without a little help from my SC friends.
 This is what is sounds like:
