“There is no greater beauty or charm than what we can find in nature.”Todd Romano
Welcome to Waterton
Waterton Lakes National Park is a hidden gem in Alberta. It’s the smallest Canadian national park and it’s one of the windiest places in Alberta.
Here you’ll find ample lakes, unique mountains, and plentiful wildlife. Waterton has actually been said to look like a little Alaska.
My two favourite things about Waterton are the striking red rock that can be found throughout the Park and the remnants of the Kenow wildfire; aka the burn-scarred landscape. Waterton pre-fire can be seen across Upper Waterton Lake on the Crypt Lake trail as this area was not touched by the flames.
