The pass was first explored in 1858 by the Palliser Expedition led by Captain John Palliser. The pass and the adjacent Kicking Horse River were given their names after James Hector, a naturalist, geologist, and surgeon who was a member of the expedition, was kicked by his horse while exploring the region.

That must be very awful that they dedicated the name on the accident. Thanks for the reply.

Park Bridge

Here is North America's longest road tunnel being constructed towards Kicking Horse Canyon. Most images show the construction of the bridge over the canyon, which should interest you folks.

Here's to hoping we can finally make the Trans Canada Highway good enough for 100 km/h driving all the way long. We still have lots of bends and nooks where slowing down is necessary, especially in the Rockies and around Lake Superior.
Park Bridge is a perfect example of how to design a bridge in an undeveloped area of spectacular natural beauty. Graceful and low-key.
