Once I stood on top of the Monarch Ramparts ridge, in the west side of it, the expansive Kootenay National Park came into view. The backside of the Monarch was most promising, but also Hawk Ridge in the wall of mountains caught my eye. Mt. Verendrye, Mt. Waddle and Mt. White Tail were playing peekaboo behind the wall. Didn’t know then, but I drove through a canyon called Vermilion Crossing, which sits between those two walls, once entered the park through Kootenay Crossing. I see you Kootenay!
