Waterton Lakes National Park

Waterton Lakes was our first Canadian National Park. It was also the only day of the trip in which we had a lot of rain. So we endured cloud cover, pouring rain, and wet dog smell for the day. Waterton Lakes was a pretty small park, but had some amazing views, unfortunately most of the views were blocked by the rainclouds.

Close encounter with some Mt Goats

During our recent trip to Canada, we were lucky enough to see some mountain goats that happened to be right next to the road. As some of you know, they are one of my favorite animals, and it was really exciting to see them up close. It was Alan's first encounter with mountain goats. I don't think his hearing has recovered from my squeal of delight upon seeing them.
