Since we are in the Canadian Rockies, and the snow on the mountains are now melting, we wanted to see some waterfalls. We went to the area known as Tumbler Ridge, named by explorer Edmund Spieker in 1920. We hiked for about 2 hours
to find Quality Falls.
Wanting to see larger falls, we drove 40 more miles to find Kinuseo Falls, on the Murray River. Kinuseo means ‘fish’ in the Cree Indian language, owing to the great numbers of trout both above and below the falls.
We saw no fish. Barbara did taste the water for fish poop.None.
The locals say the falls is over 200 feet tall (70 meters), and therefore taller than Niagara Falls (50 meters), although the volume of water is less. They must be doing the metric conversion wrong, as it did not appear to me taller than Niagara Falls. Or, maybe they are referring to the Canadian side of Niagara.
During our drive, we passed through a turbine windmill farm.
Upon making a wrong turn, we ended up at the transfer station where they had stored replacement blades for the windmills.
When we measured their length, it came to 200 feet. That is as high as Kinuseo Falls.
