The Natural Wonders of Waterton Lakes National Park

The Wonders of Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada | The Planet D Adventure Travel Blog | Waterton is directly connected to Glacier National Park and the two parks are known as the International Peace Park - UNESCO World Heritage Site:


Cameron Falls in Alberta, Canada. Waterfalls are normally an astounding sight for tourists, but the Cameron Falls located inside the Waterton Lakes National Park turns red when heavy rains occur. Argolite, the red-colored sediment, causes the water to turn red. It is recommended to visit Cameron Falls during the rainy season to get a lucky view of the fall's natural wonder.


Waterton Lakes National Park is in the southwest corner of Alberta, Canada, and borders Glacier National Park in Montana. Waterton was formed in 1895 and named after Waterton Lake, which was named after the Victorian naturalist and conservationist Charles Waterton. The park contains 195 sq miles of rugged mountains and wilderness.
