Day 29 - Glacier National Park (US) and Waterton National Park (Canada)

Glacier National Park is half of a Peace Park with Waterton National Park in Canada.  There is a lovely drive that goes up to Waterton.  We drove up there and met some very polite people there although no one apologized to us.

The Millers in Canada!  

Waterton is in Alberta province.  The fascinating thing about this park is that there is a village in the middle of it.  So beautiful.  We had a lovely lunch there and then did a little shopping.  We took a drive in the park up to a lovely lake.

What a cute village! 

We didn't kayak here but lots of people were enjoying the water.

And then headed back to the US.  This is the second time we've done a "run to the border" for a day trip to Canada.  The border guards on both sides are so surprised that someone would drive to another country for lunch.  Well, that's just us . . . we're unusual that way!

If you get up to Glacier, we highly recommend that you make a day trip up there, too!  Even if you get strange looks from the border guards.
