Laurier, Jeff, and I headed down to Waterton for some hiking over the August long weekend.
We drove down Friday night and found a site at the Waterton Reservoir campground for the night. The reservoir is nice, but the campground is pretty barren.
Saturday, we packed up and found a very nice alternate site at Belly River campground, which was nicely secluded.
We then hiked up Bear's Hump with the afternoon time we had before the weather tanked.
Bear's Hump is a short, steep hike, but it brings to a really spectacular view.

The good hiking trail.
