Police lake Provincial Park is at the very edge of Southern Alberta, right next to the Montana border. The way the wind blows in the fall, mornings are often rewarding with dramatic skies and beautiful sunrises. The weekend was here and so I decided to take my chances that we would get such views and I drove up to Police Lake watching closely for the deer that tend to be on or near the roads in the area. I did see several and had to nearly stop at one point as not to collide with some.
The sky did not disappoint, but the window of such opportunities is short. I was only there maybe 1/2 hour, going from dramatic dark sky, to orange and yellow sunrise, then dull and gone. I was entertained by a couple of young white tail deer that was bounding and playing with each other, while waiting for the sky to gather its light.

Waterton Park is located in the South West end of Alberta. It is a wonderful park that has stayed to the roots of nature for the most part. It offers opportunity for photos of wild life, Mountains and landscape. It connects with Glacier Park in Montana and they have called them the international peace parks as a result. In the summer there are many trails to hike with wonderful scenery. In the winter you can snow shoe, cross country ski, or lodge in a Motel that stays open all year round. If you are into geocaching you can find cache's placed by "park people" that will still protect the sensitive nature of the area, yet are fun to find. You can take a ride on one of the boats the park offers to tour into the USA and back into the docks of the town. This park is one of my favorite places to go and take photographs.
