The weather along the Alberta Rockies was quite dreary for my first week off in September 2015. After doing a fairly intense trip with Ben up Evelyn Peak in Jasper National Park, I came home for a day before setting out in the opposite direction to try my luck in the southern Rockies instead. It's been a long time since I set foot in Waterton National Park - about 6 years to be exact! I wasn't impressed with the Red Rock Road being closed already (due to construction) but hoped that there'd be enough other objectives to keep me busy. Mostly I was just hoping that the conditions would be decent.
