Kootenai Falls

I developed an appreciation for the Kootenai River on this trip.  The second morning of the trip I explored its confluence with the larger Columbia River in Castlegar and then we crossed it or followed it on our way east towards Crows Nest Pass.  And then today, we've seen Lake Koocanusa and are now following the river downstream from Libby where it drops spectacularly over Kootenai Falls.  One of the larger waterfalls - or series of falls - in the west. And one of the few that hasn't been turned into a dam or completely diverted for irrigation.

My 26 posts from this trip - all tagged under SeptTrip2012 - began and ended on the Kootenai.
