Our Mountain Get-away In Waterton Lakes National Park

Happy Friday Friends!

I am so, so happy it’s the weekend! This back to school stuff can be tiring, especially for this Mama!

This week I was going through some pictures from this summer and decided I would share some with you. Every year, we spend a week in the mountains. No matter how many times I’ve been there, each trip back makes me stand back in awe. The beauty. The majesty. Just the absolute beautiful creation of God. So this post will mostly be pictures… hope you enjoy!

This is one of our kid’s favorite spot in the park. Red Rock Canyon is such a neat place to visit… you can walk along this little canyon for quite a long time. Sometimes the water gets fairly deep and it’s tricky to stay dry. It’s definitely our favorite spot ever to have a picnic … the views are out of this world!

There is so much beautiful drift wood that washes up on shore…

and these two had so much fun building all kinds of things with Daddy! Teepees big enough to sit in, a “log cabin”, and more!

We love to hike many of the beautiful trails in the mountains and this pictures shows you how touch this climb was! We were out of breath a couple of times! Glad we kept going though, because the view on top was ahhh-mazing…

The hike ends at the top of the mountain with a 360degree view! Here’s a view of the village of Waterton… the curvy lake on the top right corner of the picture leads into Glacier National Park in Montana.

    Those are beautiful pics!! And your kids are beautiful as well! Looks like a very relaxing, fun trip! Just looking at the pics of the water and mountains is so peaceful. Lucky you to be able to visit there so often! We don’t live anywhere close to any mountains. We do have lots of hills though. Lol!

    What a great vacation! And I love your pictures. We live 15-20 minutes away from the mountains and we hardly ever go… We need to go more! That Prince of Wales Hotel looks amazing!! It’s always fun to look back on vacation pictures when things get crazy at home… Keeps me motivated to keep pushing through the day!
