Natural Bridge Falls, Kicking Horse River, Rocky Mountains, Canada

The Kicking Horse River is in the Canadian Rocky Mountains in southeastern British Columbia, Canada. The river was named in 1858 when James Hector, a member of the Palliser Expedition, reported being kicked by his packhorse while exploring the river.

Hector named the river and the associated pass as a result of the incident. The river has three waterfalls along its stretch. The first is the Kicking Horse Cascade, the second is the Natural Bridge Falls near Field, the third (and largest) is Wapta Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in Canada in both volume and width.
