Continuing the theme of lakes and wonderful national parks, we drove north to Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta. Waterton and Glacier are best friends. Officially, they make up Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. If you have a passport, it’s an easy trip from the Many Glacier area. The town of Waterton is incredibly cute and has lots of camping, motel, and hotel options. We enjoyed the Bear Mountain Motel.
Clockwise from the top left: Waiting for teatime, Red Rock Canyon, Blakiston Falls, A BABY BEAR, Prince of Wales Hotel, delicious deserts at the Prince of Wales Tea.
Waterton was the perfect, quirky place to end the second leg of this road trip. From gourmet hot dogs at Wieners of Waterton, to a delightful community theater production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, to BEAR sightings, it really has it all. Big thanks to Natalie for being a great co-captain and taking pictures of wildlife and roadside oddities throughout the trip.
