The picture on the left was taken in Waterton Lakes National Park of Canada here.

The other picture was taken at Banff National Park of Canada here.

“Rugged, windswept mountains rise abruptly out of gentle prairie grassland in spectacular Waterton Lakes National Park. Here, several different ecological regions meet and interact in a landscape shaped by wind, fire, flooding, and abundant plants and wildlife. The park helps protect the unique and unusually diverse physical, biological and cultural resources found in the Crown of the Continent: one of the narrowest places in the Rocky Mountains.”

The first sun rays hit the very top of the mountain peak across the lake at Waterton National Park in Alberta Canada.

If you’ve never been to Waterton it’s right on the USA – Canada Border in Alberta

In fact the mountain in the above picture probably is partially in USA

The last post was some pictures while walking around mostly the inner portion of the small city.

This day I went down to the water front and did some sunrise pictures and then some more pictures downtown during the evening.

Since we already went over the city itself in the last post I’ll just talk about pictures more than the places.

Nice little sunrise greated me as I went down to the nice bouldery beach… haha.
On a side note I did see a couple of sand beaches on the other side of the island… mostly black sand.

So while the island is beautiful it’s not your typical lay on the beach get-a-away vacation island.
