Day 88 of our Journey

In 1932 Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada joined Glacier National Park in Montana on the US side of the border to create the Waterton Glacier International Peace Park which was made a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. Here are some highlights from our time in the Canadian half of the world’s first cross-border park.

Shortly after entering the park we pulled over to watch this coyote struggle to drag dinner home after a successful hunt.

The Prince of Wales Hotel has a very dramatic location right in the park.
