Kootenay National Park of Canada – British Columbia

Kootenay National Park of British Columbia represents the south-western region of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. From glacier-clad peaks along the Continental Divide to semi-arid grasslands of the Rocky Mountain Trench, where cactus grows, this is a park rich in diversity of landscapes and ecology.

The area that is now Kootenay National Park was once a meeting place for Plains and Mountain First Nations as well as fur traders and explorers. Pictographs and ancient paint pots used by the Kootenai Indians to decorate themselves and their teepees years ago are found in this park.
