Cameron Lake-Waterton Lakes National Park-Canada

This photograh was taken almost to the end of June and the lake was still half frozen, because of the high elevation. I had to walk along the shore full of snow to get this spot for this composition.

 

Cameron Lake is a hidden jewel in Waterton Lakes National Park. To get to the lake you need to drive about 20-30 minutes up a windy road through the mountains. The drive is well worth it, as you will invariably see Deers and Bears along the way and during the spring some waterfalls. There are several hiking trails and picnic spots off the road, and they are well marked.

 

The lake is nestled in the mountains, and provides spectacular views! The water is clear and the lake is full of fish. The lake is a glacial basin with spectacular views, hiking, picnicking, fishing and boating. You can rent canoes, kayaks, and pedal boats during the Summer.

 

As always, thanks for stopping by and looking. I appreciate your comments and visits.
