Into Canada

Many miles since we left Yellowstone, we spent 2 days at Glacier National Park.  Saw may Bighorn Sheep, many were with lambs.  Not like this one that was on the streets of Waterton in Canada. We found Mountain goats high on the rocky crags. many elk, mule deer, and the highlight 2 huge Grizzly bears interacting high above our campsite.

Drove up to Red Rock Canyon, saw 2 coyotes, one digging in the top of a beaver lodge.  At the beautiful canyon's fast moving stream, watched Am. Dipper plucking moss and flying into the rock crevices nest building.  Lower in the creek were a pair of Harlequin Ducks feeding in the fast water.  The drake in beautiful nuptial plumage.

Seeing many beautiful waterfalls like the one here at Waterton camp grounds.  Lots of snow adding to
the flow.  Some of the western birds we added were:  Steller's Jay, Rufous Hummingbird, Varied Thrush, Townsend's Solitaire, Townsend's Warbler, and Dusky Flycatcher.
