Day trip to Wateron Lakes in Alberta Canda
Jun 30, 2010
|This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places I have been to. I loved it.
We only planned a day here, and would love to come back and spend a week or two just hanging out here.
The Prince of Wales Hotel is one of the most photographed hotels in the world, per our travel literature. It sit up high above the water looking at the beautiful blue lake and the mountains.
When driving thru town we had to stop and let a deer cross in front of us. They do not seem to mind people at all. We even saw one laying in someones front yard eating and watching the tourist drive by. They could have cared less about us.
On the way to Waterton we drove thru an animal free range area and saw so many cows in the road, love it and took way to many pictures, just so funny to see them walking in the road or just standing and looking at us.
While in Waterton Lakes, we saw people kayaking on the lake in calm waters and on the other side of the lake it was so rough they were windsailing. Bikes were everywhere in town. Tour boat was out on the lake, so much going on and so little time. There is a campground in Wateron Lakes, and definately we will go back and spend time there either in a lodge or camping. Just to beautiful to only go once.
We had lunch at the Prince of Wales Hotel, and our view was awesome.
We had dinner at the Issac Walton Hotel, very interesting place with the train running right next to the hotel and dining room. We had a vegetable served to us and we could not figure out what it was, ask and found out it was parsnip, very interesting texture and flavor.
On the way back we passed by a herd of Mountain Goats climbing and playing on the hill, on baby that was so much fun to watch.
END of another fun day.
