Where I stayed
Cavell Campground and Townsite Campground
Upon entering into the town of Waterton, visitors are greeted by the majestic Prince of Wales Hotel, which overlooks the town and Waterton Lake. We ended up camping for the first portion of our visit at Crandell Mountain campground with minimal facilities and incredible views of the mountains and bears frolicking on the slopes
Our second half of our stay we camped at the Townsite Campground as the other campground closed for the season. The boys celebrated Tuesday September 4th in style by having dessert at the Prince of Wales Hotel overlooking the lake and mountains, while having a not-back-to-school party! Our second and most challenging hike so far in our travels was up the Bear's Hump Trail. Think straight up, high altitude for 2.8km! I thought I was going to be sick at one point but I felt rather pathetic watching Jakob practically run up it! Perseverance prevailed and the view at the top was spectacular. On our last day we canoed into the States on Cameron Lake with views of a glacier. Life doesn't get much better.
Well this wraps up the Canadian portion of our trip. Next destination, Yellowstone National Park MT/WY!
