A Glacier birthday for mom

For my mom’s birthday she wanted to go to Glacier National Park. I was happy to comply.

After seven hours on the road we started the international segment of the trip.

Our first view into Waterton National Park–the Canadian portion of Glacier-Waterton International Peace Park.

Waterton Lake and the view from the Prince of Whales hotel. This was also the view for our room and our shower. Best view from a shower I’ve ever had.

Waterton townsite.

Another view from the hotel.

The Prince of Wales hotel. Fancy, no?

It’s a peace park!

The next morning we awoke to lovely light on the lake. I went for a hike while mom enjoyed the hotel and a walk into town.

Heading up the trail to Bertha Lake.

Which way do I go?

Big Brother is watching. Or the Park Service.

    Loved the pics! I must say I am absolutely jealous I can’t go on those hikes myself. I can’t wait until Colorado!!!!!

    We are pretty lucky to live close to two awesome parks. Can’t wait to check out Rocky Mountain NP–I’ve never been there.
