This might be the most under-appreciated national park in Canada.

Ask Canadians about Waterton Lakes , and probably half the time you’ll get a blank stare. Other times, you’ll get a small nod and the response, “I’ve heard it’s beautiful.” Most of the time, the latter phrase is followed by “But I haven’t made it yet.”

Me? I don’t remember when the place first entered my mind. But I get reminded it of every time I go home to my Dad’s house in California. For years, he’s had a black and white drawing of Waterton Lakes on a Zum’s Restaurant coffee mug that he bought years ago while visiting the park with my late Mom and some friends. I always drink my coffee out of that mug when I go home, but this time I wanted to see the real thing.

I wasn’t disappointed.
