Canadian Rockies

In August we spent about 8 days in the Canadian Rockies. Unfortunately, I came home with a terrible cold, so I took it easy for over a week.

I am back to my routine of working in the studio, teaching, and walking 12 miles/week.

Our trip to the Canada was beautiful. We spent two nights in Waterton Lakes National Park on the border of the US. In 1932, this park along with Glacier National Park in the US were combined to form the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, a celebration of the friendship between Canada and the United States. Below are pictures of Waterton lake and the town. The lake is feed by glaciers which make the water such beautiful colors.

This is the view from the town. The wind comes flying into the valley causing whitecaps on the lake.

This waterfall feeds into Waterton lake.

In the town of Watertown, we saw many deer, which just roam around the streets, sitting on people's lawns and eating their flowers.
