Hiking Iceline in Yoho National Park in the rain is better than hiking most other trails on a clear sunny day. It is hard to compete with the views of Takakkaw falls as you rapidly ascent to the Iceline. It's hard to compete with walking under the Presidential Range. It's hard to compete with glaciers. And onto the Whaleback and Twin Falls. It's a trail you should do again and again. If you take the Celeste Lake detour, you enjoy meadows and the remains of the old Highline Trail. If you hike the full Iceline, you get close views of Yoho Glacier. You can pick distances from 15-30 kilometers to do and there are several campsites if you'd like to stay overnight. I think it rained almost the whole hike save for a brief time near the peak of the Iceline. I was hoping to get some long exposure of Twin Falls and Laughing Falls towards the end of the trail, but I wasn't mucking around with a tripod and ND setup in the pouring rain. The rain eventually stopped for a nice evening campfire at Lake Louise.
