Waterton May 11 2019

Headed to Waterton yesterday, May 11 2019. Was an AMAZING day. Not many people outside of the town site. The town site was PACKED. Was going to spend the night at Belly River campground but decided to head home as the wind came up later in the day.

A few pictures of the van in Waterton.

first stop has been the same for the last year and that is up on Chief Mountain Highway. I head up to the border then turn around and work my way down.

It is cool looking into the US without crossing the border. From this lookout I headed to Belly River Campground to see how busy it was. Not busy at all but that will soon change.

After a tour and shooting around Waterton it was off to find a quiet place to rest. Maskinonge is the perfect spot, lots of people drive through but they don’t stay, must be because there is no services there. I do not mind, better for me. Also being May 11, 2019 it still is not tourist season.

You know you miss your kayak when…

I never had a chance to make it out a lot this past year on the kayak but with the warmer weather and the river breaking up it is SOOOOO tempting. I wonder if you can get a kayak with onboard heat?

So far I cannot complain about the winter as it has not been that cold, but the wind is keeping me in a lot more than I like. Today I went to the Lethbridge river bottom to see what birds and animals were around and not a lot of anything. When I saw how much of the river was open I was tempted to toss a kayak in and see how far I could get. I know I have to be patient but it looked so nice!

A nice little run for the kayak

Watching this piece of ice make the run down the chute had me daydreaming of when the warmer weather hits and I can get out. I am not one for huge rapids but I do like some movement. One of my favorite half day trips is from the water treatment plant in Lethbridge to Pavan Park. Not a lot of excitement but it is a nice length that I can sneak away for it and not have to rush. There is also a fair amount of birds and wildlife that is in the river bottom so taking a camera allows me to get a few images at the same time.

Oldman river Lethbridge.  Not a kayak but I can hope!
Well it is not a kayak but at least a piece of ice made the run!

More exploring…..

River Bottom

A cold fall day exploring the river bottom turned out to be a nice warm fall day.  Funny how a day that looks like it will be bad can turn around.

I love the colors this time of the year in the river bottom
Cold blue ice and warm grass

Sofa Mountain, Waterton Lakes National Park


I love Sofa Mountain anytime, but early winter it really stands out. There is a lot of snow in those there mountains. October 4, 2018 and most years there may be a light dusting of snow, or maybe some frost but this year the snow is cold and deep. Great for building the snow pack and for pictures, not so great for people or animals trying to get through it.

With the hot summer it was nice to see some snow and moisture starting but even when you know you need it this early it is hard to take!

Writing on Stone

An afternoon trip to Writing on Stone this past weekend. It was overcast and cool but the colors were amazing!!! Love this park when it is not unbearably hot!

Writing on Stone
Looking south down to the river

Surprisingly there were a lot of people camping considering the weather was cool and damp.  But as usual as soon as you walk a few feet into the coulees you may hear the people but you seldom see them.  Not a lot of animals out this trip, saw a number of Pronghorns just outside the park but that was it.
