Day 21: In Waterton national park

Northwestern America and New York



After 5 weeks of extensive traveling on the other side of the big pool, I'm (finally) back to Switzerland. An exciting journey and a large photo tour ended. My wife and I visited several national parks within the USA and Canada. We started in New York and travelled from Portland to Salt Lake City along the Rocky Mountains, spending 2 weeks in Canada in between.


I captured 72GB of photos. Showing all of this would be impossible. I will start with an overview over the journey by presenting one picture a day. I will choose the most significant picture of every day of the journey. I will also add a description of the place so you're able to find those beautiful places if you'd like to.


And for all those who are expecting typical David-Kaplan-style pictures, here a note: During vacation I don't have so much time for planning my photo trips and waiting for the best light. Many of the following pictures may be kind of a snapshot. Please be aware of that when writing constructive critique. But I'm always interested in some feedback because I like to learn.


Day 21: In Waterton national park



Very early in the morning we headed towards Akamina lake. We were a little bit friable because we were the first hikers on that trail this day and this little lake is famous for the many Grizzlys visiting it. Instead of Grizzlys we saw some wonderful golden sunlight coming down the lake which made the above photo possible.

In the afternoon we hiked to the Blakiston Falls on a very beautiful and mountained valley.
