August 31 - Cranbrook, British Columbia

On Tuesday we drove north-west in Montana toward Alberta. The landscape was again typical Montana prairie. En route we spotted this lone white-tailed deer in the grasses.


We crossed the border into Alberta at Waterton Lakes National Park. We spent the remainder of the day cruising the Blakiston Valley road looking for wildlife since the lighting for scenics was not good. Here are two black bears that I photographed there.

Aug30-2Aug30-2 Aug30-3Aug30-3 We found a room for the night in Pincher Creek, 42 kilometers north because the pickings at Waterton are slim or very expensive.

This morning we left to drive back to Waterton, hoping for a nice sunrise. But would you believe, this was the first overcast morning of the trip. That was only because I had a plan on where to photograph the sunrise. But we again cruised for images, either landscapes or wildlife. So bear with me - here is a photograph that I made this morning.

Aug31-1Aug31-1 Oh! There was other wild life in the valley.

Aug31-2Aug31-2 We left Waterton at mid-day. On the drive north, I stopped to make this photo at a location I had picked out yesterday, just south of Pincher Creek.

We then drove west along Highway 3 through Crowsnest Pass into British Columbia, stopping to spend the night in Cranbrook at a hotel at a native casino, which was a former residential school, St Eugene.
