Where the Prairies Meet the Mountains

Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada

Where the Mountains Meet the Prairies - Waterton Lakes National Park In this breathtaking part of the world , the majestic Rocky Mountains rise suddenly out of the rolling prairies. The vast grass lands support an abundance of wildlife, including roaming elk and mule deer. This picture is an example of the lack of surrounding foothills: "Where Mountains Meet the Prairies". This rare phenomenon of wetlands, lakes and rivers, prairie, aspen parkland, montane and sub-alpine forests and alpine areas, offers a combination of terrain which is found in no other National Park in Canada.
