The boyfriend and I had a little weekend getaway to Waterton this past weekend as a bit of a celebration for him being done tax season and myself being done the semester. It was well deserved. I'd only been to Waterton once before, as a child with my mother, brother, and grandmother. Up until this trip I couldn't have pointed it out on a map for you, but it is located in very southern Alberta just about bordering both the United States and British Columbia. It's a quaint little place—a few locally owned businesses and not even a Tim Hortons to be found (a ridiculous, albeit 'Canadian' thing to say). My understanding is that the place more or less shuts down for the winter. Our hotel had just opened for the season on May 1st, and no shoppes other than the restaurant in our hotel, the gas station, and another hotel restaurant were open yet. Admittedly, it made it somewhat eerie.

One of my favorite parts was the wildlife. Within an hour of arriving, we'd seen deer, big horned sheep, and a fox. We saw the sheep and the deer throughout the weekend, which was very cool. They were so accustomed to having people around that we managed to get quite close to snap some photos. We did a lot of lounging—naps and hanging out. Other than that, we also managed to get in two littles hikes: one to Bear Hump and one to Red Rock Canyon. It was so nice to be able to get away for a bit before life picks up again, however brief the trip was.
