Overview
More
The climax of a 16 km (10 mile) scenic highway known as the Akamina Parkway, is Cameron Lake. Nestled between the majestic mountain peaks of the Akamina Ridge, this sub-alpine lake is one of many serene bodies of water that makes up Waterton Lakes National Park. Beautiful Cameron lake is a great place to rent a canoe and grizzlies are often seen on the far slopes.

We drove out towards Cameron Lake on the Akima Parkway in the late afternoon. The road was quiet and we enjoyed several great wildlife sightings!

Now, we thought our only wildlife would be a mouse that ran across the road. But we ended up seeing 3 different bears at separate locations. Some spots allow you to pull over and enjoy the noise and beauty of a beautiful river creek roaring...More
