Photographer's Note

Crypt Lake (1945 m) is the end of a popular hiking trail in Waterton Lakes National Park. At the end of July, ice is still lingering on the lake shore, and will likely remain there unless the summer proves to be a very hot one. In the areas with shallow water plenty of red, spawning trout, difficult to catch on film.
Waterton Lakes is probably the best area for spotting a black or grizzly bear in Alberta. I haven't seen any that day, but a party hiking ten minutes ahead of us had a close encounter with a young grizzly on the trail, and on the way back there were fresh diggings around the path. If I regret not seeing one... no, not really.
