The Canadian Rocky Mountains is the location of the smallest of the four adjacent national parks in Canada – the Yoho National Park. The name of the park was derived from the Cree word Yoho which means awe and wonder. At just 1,313 square kilometers, the park is the smallest of the four parks that include Kootenay National Park, Banff National Park and Jasper National Park.

The park was established in 1886 after Prime Minister John A. Macdonald and his wife Agnes went to the Rockies to see then newly completed Transcontinental Railroad. It became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

Yoho National Park is home to several types of animals including hummingbirds, marmots, goats, moose, bears, elks, badgers and many more. The park also features several mountains such as Mount Burgess, Mounts Stephen, The President, The Vice President, Mount Goodsir and Mount Balfour. Two waterfalls – Takakkaw Falls and Wapta Falls – can also be found within the premises.
