Hiking in Waterton Lakes National Park

Source: Travel Alberta

Sun slants though pines as your pleasant hike to the lakeside shows a peaceful shoreline. Relax and listen to the lapping water, the soft lake breeze carrying the sounds of waterfowl. Raising your binoculars, you watch a deer step gingerly from the bushes. She lifts her head and then bounds away. Waterton teems with wildlife, especially during autumn when the elk clash during rutting season and the larch trees flare to gold. In early summer, hike upwards through a wildflower meadow to a vantage point that overlooks the broad lake. This is nature at its finest.
