Description:

"Twin Falls: Further up the Yoho Valley, following the Yoho River, is a rather more rugged country affording a longer trip. The Twin Falls are of great interest, owing to the perpendicular drop of the two vast columns of water and the dense clouds of steamlike spray caused by their concussion with the rock floor beneath. From here one can penetrate still further into the range and reach the Yoho Glacier. A tea-house has been established, providing overnight accomodation at Twin Falls."
