Cameron Falls, Waterton Lakes National Park, Canada

1st off - I wish to say Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day to all!! enjoy you day!! Keep a smile & I want to Thank You for stoppin' in today!! take care. ( :



"Cameron Falls", was very close walk to our campground. lots of people that day. i took my picture and then ran away. i am not much on loud, noise places. i prefer quiet. one group was a school trip. lots of fat chipmunks running around begging for food. one even tried to stare me down, giving me those cute chipmunk eyes, please feed me, please??! no food from me. i know better than that. it seems others do not. not cool. 

quick story, there was a puma sighting (it was even in the area newspapers, it was a big story) and he/she attacked a girl. the rangers killed the puma, which breaks my heart. i feel we are humans in their territory. if we don't do or go by the correct rules, stay back from wildlife, don't feed them, don't do anything with them at all, maybe take a picture or two (from a distance) and MOVE ON. there has to be more to the story than we will never know?!?! wildlife were there 1st. we moved in long after. leave the wildlife alone. they are not pets and need to be left alone. pics taken late August 2014.

Hi Beth, the waterfalls looks familiar.. I feel the same way as you when it comes to the wildlife.. They were here first. It is sad that animals have to be killed because of how humans acted.. I wish you a happy day!

Sad about the puma.

Love the falls...like you, I would have not wanted to stay if there were a lot of loud people. That is not my idea of enjoyment. And do you ever notice how a lot of people go to a place like that, and take a radio and blast it till you cannot hear? Not that I don't blast mine sometimes, just not out at a place like that.

Beth, it is meant to be a restful place, with the sound of the falls and the beauty of the surroundings. And the animals are a part of that scene. "Don't feed the animals" is more than some people can resist.

I like the divided falls very much. That area is very attractive. I agree with you about the human interaction with wild animals.
Wow, that's beautiful. I too don't like big crowds and lots of noise. Probably why we're living in the country, or maybe that's why I don't like the crowds and noise, because I've lived in the country all my life! Have a wonderful day, Beth.

Totally agree with you on being in quiet places and with our invasion on the wildlife!...:)JP

Very nice pictures and I agree the wildlife should be left alone.

This is a beautiful waterfall. We also like to have our waterfalls to ourselves rather than with a lot of other people.

What a pretty waterfall!

Beautiful spot! I especially like the first shot.
People just don't get it and think they're doing wildlife favors to feed them. We live around a lot of deer. One of our neighbors seems to feed them from time to time. We'll look out the window and see a line of five or six deer making a beeline to our neighbor's back porch. (It's rare that pumas attack humans, though it has increased with more human encroachment.)

Beautiful waterfall, Beth. We need to go that way sometime... There's so many waterfalls we have not seen yet....

True about the wildlife.....
Hugs,
Betsy

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ... I was wondering if we would make it home. Apparently it will only affect southern Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama ... I might …
