The surrounding area was fun for tubing down the Old Man River, nature walk through a grove of cypress trees, and Rattlesnake Reserve, a nice botanical garden right in Lethbridge. It’s easy to get around. There are lots of restaurants in Lethbridge. There are easy day trips for fishing and waterfalls in the Crows Nest area to Waterton National Park, and Head Smashed-in Buffalo Jump, which all made for a busy, fun week.
We managed to do all this in spite of having some car trouble -- people were friendly and helpful, enabling us to deal with our problem quickly so that we could get on with our holiday. Take your sunscreen!
