Blakiston falls, Waterton Lakes National Park

4.1
#5 of 7 in Nature in Waterton Lakes National Park

Bring your camera, as you will be rewarded with lovely views of the rapids, the canyon runoff, and Mount Blakiston from the viewing platforms--two below the waterfall accessible by a wooden staircase, and one right over the top of the falls providing a bird's-eye view.
