Notes: Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta Canada
Pass Creek is a short walk from here, a quiet vista but for the wind.
"Emerging from the mouth of Pass Creek [ca. 1865] we hit the foothills... The prairie as far as we could see east, north and west was one living mass of buffalo... as we rode through... the great beasts just moved off slowly. We made a lane of only about one hundred yards and they paid little attention." (p. 59, Rodney) Rodney, William. Kootenai Brown, Canada’s Unknown Frontiersman. Surrey, BC: Heritage House Publishing, 1996.
There are 3 bison in the paddock. Even so the place has old thunder from the past ... and buffalo beans.
