Where I stayed
Two Jack Lakeside
Toured Johnston Canyon which has many really picturesque falls and continued the climb to see the Ink Pots -- shot a small video which will hopefully show these bubbling creatures in action. Although the sun was wrong for pictures, continued on for quick glimpses of Lake Louise and Banff.
Our last day in the park included a great hike through an impressive old-growth forest (mainly Spruce and Lodge-Pole Pine) to glacier fed Boom Lake; well worth the uphill climb for a great picnic.
On the road again -- more stories from Waterton National Park soon...
- Haven’t seen a real sunset since June; NWT due to no darkness and Alberta because of the mountains.
- Rant: Fire permits in Alberta National Parks are a rip-off and cause people to waste “free” wood.
