JKR: Thanks for starting this thread. Weve been through this region two or three times on the way to Banff. Next trip, well have to spend some time in the Kootenays.

Stewart: Im enjoying your wildlife photos. I really like the photo of the elk in the snow.

Kootenay Lake is beautiful, dramatic and full of surprises. These shots were all taken in the same afternoon.

The old growth temperate rain forest, off the gravel road on the way to Kokanee Glacier Park, is a special place to explore.

The Slocan Valley in the West Kootenay is another great area to explore.
