Four Glacier

East Glacier is bear country so we were constantly on bear patrol.  
The grand bear total today= FOUR black bears.

This is the first time that Eric and I have been to Canada eh.

Waterton is a little town located in the center of Waterton Lakes National Park eh.  The Canadian National Park is connected to Glacier National Park on the US side.  Lone Wolf was born and raised in Fernie, BC, Canada.

It is hard to believe that this is an official sign, but here we are to prove it.

I guess people just become too comfortable around these wild animals, and they don't always act as cute and innocent as they look eh.

Raya brought us into a liquor store to compare prices.  
Coors must have a different fan base in Canada than in the US eh. 

This is gourmet beer!

Ye Old Lick and Nibble Ice Cream Shoppe gets their ice cream fresh from a local creamery.

We didn't write this, and we never found the kid who wrote it.  
I can't imagine they were in the ice cream shoppe, or the gift shoppe... poor thing.

The Prince of Wales Hotel is a Waterton icon, and has been since 1927, when it opened and bus service began to and from Glacier National Park.

In the afternoon we returned to Many Glacier, and joined the other tourists observing wildlife from the campground.

This hill by our campsite is a favorite haunt of mountain goats, who are always showing off.

For the record, Montana, this is what a grilled cheese is supposed to look like.  (Thanks, Josh!)

Right next to our campsite is a river, and a family of busy beavers.  

They didn't exactly love us observing them but they continued their chores (eat, move, build, repeat), while keeping an eye on the strange bipedal animals watching them.
