Waterton River




Waterton River is located in Waterton Lakes National Park and is part of the South Saskatchewan River Basin.  The highway basically followed the river abundant with wildlife and waterfalls.


Cameron Lake



Waterton National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains is bear country.  The large brown bear was enjoying eating flowers on the road side to Cameron Lake.

Cloudy Day Waterton Lakes

 



 

 House of Clouds

By Elizabeth Barrett Browning

I would build a cloudy House
For my thoughts to live in;
When for earth too fancy-loose
And too low for Heaven!
Hush! I talk my dream aloud---
I build it bright to see,---
I build it on the moonlit cloud,
To which I looked with thee.

Cloud-walls of the morning's grey,
Faced with amber column,---
Crowned with crimson cupola
From a sunset solemn!
May mists, for the casements, fetch,
Pale and glimmering;
With a sunbeam hid in each,
And a smell of spring.

Cameron Lake



Cameron Lake is at the end of Akamina Parkway.  There were a lot of tourist so we hike Cameron Lakeshore trail.  The mountain range still had snow and ice against the black mountain peaks.

Bear Sightings Waterton Lakes National Park





We saw several bears on Red Rock Parkway and Akamina Parkway.  I freaked out if the car got too close.  These bears are large and I did not want to get into a bear jam but people are crazy and will not drive slowly pass them. 

Bighorn Sheep Waterton Lakes National Park



This Bighorn sheep was on Red Rock Parkway outside Waterton Lakes Village.  We saw a lot of wildlife driving around the park.
