Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park

Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park: My 95th UNESCO World Heritage Site


From the World Heritage inscription for Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park:

In 1932 Waterton Lakes National Park (Alberta, Canada) was combined with the Glacier National Park (Montana, United States) to form the world’s first International Peace Park. Situated on the border between the two countries and offering outstanding scenery, the park is exceptionally rich in plant and mammal species as well as prairie, forest, and alpine and glacial features.

Glacier might be my favorite national park in the US. The views are breathtaking and mountains are magnificent.
