Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Along my cross-Canada moving roadtrip, I needed to find a few places to stay overnight while still trying to enjoy the scenery and the time I spent in the mountains. I was able to get a spot at the Whiskey Jack Wilderness Hostel in Yoho National Park for one night. The dorms were very clean and comfortable, and we had access to a shower, water and a large kitchen in the common area. The vibe is really quiet and calm, as most travellers here are hikers getting ready to hit the trail early in the morning. The hostel is closed from 10am-5pm, when the doors get locked as everyone goes on with their day. The hostel is very conveniently located right at the trailhead of some large hikes in Yoho, and right in front of the Takakkaw Falls. Plan your food well, because the closest grocery store is located in Golden BC, or back in Lake Louise, AB. I would definitely recommend to stay here if you need a base camp for your hiking!
