It was a less eventful day today with no bear sightings. We saw some deer late in the day, but they were in a hurry to get somewhere so did stop for pictures. What I have are some pictures of the natural beauty of Waterton Lakes National Park.
As we drove south from Pincher Creek, this is the view of the mountains before a person drives into them. The sign says, “Where prairie meets the mountains” and they do.
And, if you give it a few minutes, this is what it looks like.
Sun embraces mountains
The sky in peaceful fury
Signals the day’s end.
This is the view from the beach at the town site of Mount Vimy. Can you imagine waking up to this every day? It would be pretty intense, but 88 people do everyday. According to Stats Can that is the official year round population of Waterton.
This is a view from the boat of the approach to the American side of Waterton Lake.
This is at Kootenai Lake which was at the end of our hike into Glacier National. The ramparts are spectacular.
Rise above it all
Magnificent natural ramparts
We feel safe below.
This is across Kootenai Lake. We waited but the moose did not show himself. He was there five minutes before we arrived.
At the end of the day, just before we left the town site, the moon appeared above Vimy.
Fair maiden appears
Light for evening’s journey
Keep us safe til morn.
Have a great August 1.
