Day 5: Waterton Lakes National Park

IMG_0152This afternoon we drove up to the foothills of the Rockies and were able to witness the Majestic Waterton Lakes National Park. As we drove into the town at the base of Cameron Lake we noticed lots of native fauna just littered throughout the streets and lawns of local residents.

We were able to walk up the side of a waterfall and get a birds eye view of the lake from up high! Words or pictures would not do it justice. Many of the students were in awe and loved seeing all the California ground squirrels and Longhorn sheep running around in the open. And just so we could say that we did it several students dipped their hands into the Cameron lake, which is glacier fed (and wow was it cold).

Looking forward to the Awards Ceremony tomorrow night. If you want to watch it, the link can be found in the menu at the top of this page, or by clicking the link below.
