Remember your passports!!
Going to the Sun Road and on to St Marys then Babb. HWY 17 to the Port of Chief Mountain Border going into Canada and on the Waterton Glacier International Peace Park. Visit the Prince of Wales Hotel, it sits atop a high bluff overlooking the lakes and the quaint village of Waterton. Have high tea in the afternoon and plan on taking the boat ride on the lake. It is usually windy so take a light jacket. ( you can always take it off). Visitwww.watertoncruise.com for more information. The upper end of the campground on the lake has a waterfall, and great photo opportunities.
Take a tour to the Ted Rock Canyon, then road # 6 to Pincher Creek over to Crowsnest Pass and here is Frank Slide. In April 1903 90 million tons of rock fell from turtle Mt burying three square kilometers of the Crowsnest Valley in less than 100 seconds. At least 70 people died.
