I really love Waterton. I love being surrounded by the beauty there. I am always shocked when someone from Southern Alberta tells me that they rarely go. That is completely sad to me. It’s an amazing place and some where that kids can explore and be free and be in nature. It’s been on my mind lately how kids are growing up now without as much exposure to nature. I think that’s terrible. Nature is part of us and we are a part of it. I feel better and more like myself when I am able to be in it and experience it. I’ve had people ask me what we do in waterton. We let the kids explore. We build dams in the water and throw rocks. We see animals and wildlife. We walk trails and do hikes. We ride bikes and build fires. We race and play hide and seek. We drive the roller coaster road back and forth. We watch for bears and talk about the times we saw this or that animal. We eat picnics and get ice cream. We rent big bikes and tour the town. We drive by the waterfall and climb around in the wooden teepee at the point. We build creations with logs and rocks and branches. We sing songs and marvel at the beauty God created. We be together without distractions. And of course, we take lots of pictures.
Get outside and explore. That’s what we do. And what a great place to do it!
