Back in August 2006, I hiked into Canada from Glacier National Park in Montana via the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail. I stayed there for three days at the Waterton Townsite Campsite, did several hikes, and then hitched a ride back into the United States.

Wild berries found on the trail – they look like Oregon grape berries (Mahonia aquifolium).
