Serene Mountain Moment
Photograph - Photographs - Digital
For the past three years I've spent time at this pristine magical place found in Switzer Park near Hinton, Alberta, Canada. During the day one can watch deer eating grass, beavers swimming up the creek slapping their tails on the waterand ducks taking care of their young. Eagles soar looking for fish and loons can be heard from the lake.
William A. Switzer Provincial Park is a lovely, uncrowded alternative to the Rocky Mountain national parks. It is nestled in the foothills 21 kilometres northwest of Hinton on Highway 40. Switzer encompasses more than 63 square kilometres and is relatively undisturbed. Pine, spruce and aspen forests surround the park's chain of five small lakes. Many animals live in the park including grizzly and black bears, wolves, lynx, cougar, moose, elk, deer, beavers and 122 bird species.
Switzer is a great year-round outdoor recreation destination that has four campgrounds, three group camping areas and three day use areas. The park's seasonal visitor centre provides picturesque views of Kelley's Bathtub.
