Waterton Lakes National Park, Canada

The deepest lake in the Canadian Rockies (444 feet) and the first oil well in western Canada (1902) are both found in Waterton, a small park named in honor of English naturalist Charles Waterton. Set in a region renowned for its winds, Waterton has special significance as the Canadian portion of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.

Spirit Island, Canada, in Waterton Park (the Canadian side of Glacier National Park in US).....just amazingly beautiful! The green tint to the water is from the water tumbling off of glaciers and being full of a lot of oxygen
