Winding Road to Waterton Lakes

The road to Waterton Lakes provided an incredible introduction to the mountains on my Rocky Mountain road trip. Around each corner I was tempted to stop and take more pictures - and as you can see, I did. The rolling hills, farms, and mountain backdrop were all iconic Alberta. It was an absolute joy to drive.

I stopped briefly in Cardston, Alberta to check out the historic Latter-day Saints temple located there. Built between 1913-1923, the Cardston Temple is the oldest LDS temple outside of the United States. It was designated a National Historic Site in 1992.
