May holiday sketches: Waterton Lakes National Park part 1

Our recent week-long holiday in May was a bit of  a "Grand Tour" of southern Alberta, beginning in Lethbridge to attend a conference but moving along southwest towards the US border to Waterton Lakes National Park, then back north to Head-Smashed-In-Buffalo-Jump, eastwards to Dinosaur Provincial Park, and finally to Drumheller before returning to Edmonton. I recently learned that of the 16 Canadian sites designated on the UNESCO World Heritage List, there are 5 in Alberta, and we ended up visiting 3 of them for the first time on this journey. 

These are some of the first sketches  at Waterton Lakes National Park... 

 The town site was full of bighorn sheep roaming everywhere. They congregate at the town in May, but disperse into the wild for the rest of the year.
