Part I, Chapter 1
Bertha Lake, Waterton Lakes National Park, is Charlie’s favorite hike.
This is looking south from the north end of Bertha Lake.
Looking southeast from the northwest side of Bertha.
Looking toward the avalanche area at the south end.
Part I, Chapter 3
The deer live under those bushes for much of the winter.
He loved winter storms. This is one of the earlier ones before this tree had lost its leaves.
This photo is later on, long after all its leaves are gone.
For the first time in his life, he had a garage. That made watching storms like this even more enjoyable.
Part II, Chapter 5 – Cameron Creek
A beautiful part of Cameron Creek
If this were a Rorschach test, Charlie would likely say —
Part IV, Chapter 5
Snow and stubble. A wonderful combination.
Coming into the town of Leavitt.
There are lots of cattle and horses in southern Alberta.
These sloughs are beautiful as is, but Charlie much prefers them filled with swans and mallards.
Many farmers and ranchers grow hay for their livestock.
The end of winter. The beginning of spring.
The first major landmark is the Prince of Wales Hotel.
The eastern edge of Waterton.
Beautiful rolling hills.
The big prairie sky. The yellow is canola, and the blue may be flax
Perfect. A fence and gnarly trees.
Part V, Chapter 1
The first footbridge, if you go around the lake clockwise
The second footbridge
A closer look
A family has just crossed the first footbridge and is headed for the second. [See this one at full size.]

The lake froze during the night.
Same park, two weeks after the previous photo
Looking east from the trail into Cameron Lake
Part VI, Chapter 11 – Kenow Wildfire 2017
Looking down on the Bear’s Hump from the Prince of Wales parking lot
Also from the parking lot
Before the burn
Part VII, Chapter 6 – The Akamina Ridge
The fog in the trees was quite spectacular.
Charlie should have gone left, but there was no signage.
And he’d soon gone as far as he could.
The right trail up to the rock band
Guess whose heart is starting to pound a bit?
See them? Does that look tough, or what?
Futzing around. See all the logging on the bottom left?
Descending from the Akamina Ridge. 1,300 meters.
Finally. That descent really hurt.
Part VIII, Chapter 9
The Dinosaur badlands just before the entrance to the park
Beautiful ironstone. But the layers of ironstone eventually break up.
Part VIII, Chapter 10
Part IX, Chapter 8
At Bertha Lake
Part IX, Chapter 16 – Goat Lake Hike
Some places are quite challenging.
Part X, Chapter 9 – Crypt Lake Trail
Part XIII, Chapter 13
The Crosswalk in Maple Creek, SK.
Looking from Hwy. 21 toward Maple Creek.
Straight. A typical, rural highway.
A Texas gate.
Looking northwest from Hwy. 21 toward Fox Valley.
Looking eastward down Railway Avenue toward the townsite.
Looking westward from Hwy. 21 toward Fox Valley. Note the pronghorn in the bottom left.
