Radium Hot Springs soothe the body above Radium in British Columbia, Canada.
The clear, bright day is ideal for the three hour road trip from Calgary, Alberta to Radium, British Columbia, Canada.
Following a photo opportunity stop of Castle Mountain at Castle Junction, Hwy 93 south will proceed to Radium on winding, roller-coaster highway across the Continental Divide and through Kootenay National Park in British Columbia.
Views from high points are breathtaking. In Radium, some light hiking on Redstreak Mountain provides panoramic beyond the mountain-surrounded town.
A soak in Radium Hot Springs is mandatory and on the drive back across the Continental Divide a stop just south of Castle Junction initiates a short, scenic hike across the suspension foot-bridge to the snowbound Paint Pots.
On the return drive to Calgary the opportunity is taken to capture an image of Mount Rundle, across the Vermilion Lakes in afternoon sun.
