Waterton Lakes National Park is in south-west Alberta, Canada.and is part of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This photo was taken from a little side road off Alberta Highway 6, the road to Chief Mountain, Montana. The Waterton Valley changes very abruptly from the rolling prairie grasslands to the sharp rise of the Rocky Mountains, with very little “foothills” transition.
