We spent 5 1/2 days in Waterton National Park on the US/Canada border. Waterton along with Glacier National Park in the US forms the International Peace Park. The first two days we hiked a couple of short trails and explored a bit.
There are many lakes in the Waterton park. The town of Waterton sits at the end of Upper Waterton Lake which extends across the border. The campground is in the townsite and is in the upper right-hand corner of the photo below.
The prairie meets the mountains of Waterton without foothills in between.
The Prince of Wales Hotel is the signature site of the park. It sits on a knoll over the town.
The first day we were in Waterton was clear and windy. Then smoke from forest fires in the US created a gray haze.
We met a delightful couple from Seattle when we were camping near Yosemite this past spring. They joined us for our final 2 1/2 days in Waterton. It was such fun to get to know them better and share discoveries in Waterton.
Although it was calm while we were in Waterton, the wind is normally very strong in the town – note the tops of the trees bent in one direction.
Al and Sherry brought their golden retriever, Molly. Tobey was very intrigued, Molly not so much.
