The road into Waterton, Alberta

Waterton is an amazing little town in southern Alberta, hugging the northern Rockies. It’s part of Canada’s Glacier National Park, which is adjacent to Montana’s park of the same name. Early June proved to be barely spring in this part of the world. Record snowfall had caused serious meltwater, and the rivers and streams were bulging at their seams. Waterfalls cascaded off of mountainsides, and scruffy-looking deer and bighorn sheep wandered the main streets of this little vacation hamlet.
