Hannah’s Last Summer Hurrah !

My daughter-in-law Cena’s sister, Aunt Lona, Uncle Kevin and their children, Jared (17), Jessica (16), Chad (14) Trie (14) and Chea (13) all came down from Edmonton, Alberta, with their boat and this rubber tube, for one last Summer fling at Waterton Lakes in Southern Alberta.

What a super fun time both families all had, but none as much as Hannah with her cousins! She was the only one that got completely dunked on the tube ride because she is much shorter than the rest, but came up laughing her heart out. This little girl has guts unlimited and joined in all the hilarity with gusto.

Waterton Lakes is the smallest of the Canadian Rockies parks and was designated as Canada’s fourth national park in 1913. Located in southern Alberta along the Canada/U.S. border, it encompasses one of the narrowest areas of the Rocky Mountains and is often referred to as “where the mountains meet the prairies.”

Because several ecological regions overlap in the Waterton Lakes area, the park embraces 45 different habitats resulting in an astonishing diversity of plant and animal species.

The international Upper Waterton Lake is the deepest in the Canadian Rockies. Waterton Lakes National Park was joined with Montana’s Glacier National Park in 1932 to form the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the first of its kind.
