The park represents a small portion of the Crown of the Continent where ecosystems from north, south, east and west converge at the narrowest point in the Rocky Mountain chain.

Movement of the Lewis Thrust Fault gave rise to the park's abrupt meeting of mountains and prairie. Powerful forces shoved colorful rock formations toward the sky. Since that time, the ancient rock has continually eroded and moved from high elevations to be deposited on the plains below. Grasslands reached into mountain valleys, sweeping up their lower slopes. This meeting of plant communities is one example of why Waterton supports a wide array of wildlife. However, the only wildlife the two RV Gypsies saw here on this date, was a few deer.

The water in the creek under the water fall was crystal clear. Karen photographed a bird on a rock as it was leaning over towards the water (butt shot). Then the bird fell into the water, and unfortunately it could not fly out of the water and got washed away down the creek and probably never made it to safety.

It started raining and was cold outside. The two RV Gypsies entered the "kitchen cabin" at the picnic site. A biker person was inside waiting for the rain to stop before he got back on his motorcycle. He had a nice, warm fire made, so the two RV Gypsies enjoyed the warmth of the fire as Karen finished her lunch.
