Red Rock Canyon, Waterton Lakes National Park

Above, Cameron Falls in Waterton Lakes National Park





In this famous canyon the rock is red, thus its name.  The river/creek running through it was at the lowest I have ever seen it.  En route to the canyon, we saw two bears - one black and one cinnamon both of which were foraging berries on the mountainside.  My photos did not turn out well enough to post.





The bridge in the preceding and following photos is the same bridge, just different view points.  The trees were just beginning to turn colour on September long weekend.







I am joining Sunday Bridges at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

What a lovely time of year with the aspens on the turn.
Perfect for a ramble along the creek with such beautifully coloured rocks.

Thank you Arija. This is one of the loveliest areas of our province in my humble opinion.

Louis, It is such a gorgeous spot to take photos! I always take far more than I ever post.

Thanks for hosting Sunday Bridges!

Lovely! My fave is the one where you can see the layers in the red rock. Beautiful with the bridge!
