Overlooking Waterton

Outside Waterton

This stunning vista of the Rocky Mountains overlooks the Canadian national park known as Waterton. The overlook can be found along Hwy 6, east of the park. This road is a border crossing between the U.S. and Canada. It is a beautiful drive through the mountains that culminates with these sweeping views.

You can see the Lower Waterton Lake on the right side of the image. This is one of three lakes that bear the Waterton name within the park’s boundary. The largest of which is known as Upper Waterton and crosses over the U.S. and Canadian border. This park holds a prestigious place in history as being the first International Peace Park. It is a land set aside by two nations for the enjoyment of all people to embody and promote peace. It seems to be working as the U.S. and Canada haven’t been at war with each other since. 🙂
