trip report by site editor Rick McCharles
Three teens from Calgary SOMEHOW had never been to Waterton Lakes National Park, even though it’s only 3hrs drive from their homes.
Almost immediately we came upon 4 bears grazing the hillside.
Like adjacent Glacier National Park, Waterton is a great place to see wildlife.
Due to bear problems in the National Park campgrounds, tenting was not allowed at Crandell Mountain Campground in 2013. We decided to stay outside the Park at Crooked Creek.
We shared the Creek with a family of Beavers.
Red Rock Canyon is a classic day hike, an easy loop.
More adventurous is to follow the Canyon up the mountain for as long as possible.
The guys ended up scrambling over and under logs, getting wet and generally having a blast.
All and all, a pretty good introduction to the joys of Waterton National Park.
