Bison Paddock Loop Road | Waterton, AB

Hello friends,

Todays post will be about a fun adventure we had on the way to Waterton! When we left this morning we had no idea that Bison Paddock Loop Road existed, but we saw a sign and thought meh why not…and I am glad we took the extra half hour and did it!

Bison….we saw bison! Now for many people, this would probably be their first time ever seeing a large bison in person, however for me it wasn’t. This was still a very exciting experience though!

So this bison loop was probably a 20 minute drive or so because you need to go slow. We also stopped a few times when we saw them!

So when you get there you literally just drive right in and the bison are just hanging out inside these gates! At first we did not see any for quite some time and we were pretty frustrated I would say. Taking time from actually being in Waterton to do the drive and not see any bison…little did we know that around the next corner we would see this guy!

Now there was a sign that said “DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR VEHICLE”…. do you think I listened? No .. I did not because I learnt from my mom that breaking rules is fun! Just kidding … but at the same time not really.

My boyfriend was not too impressed when I made him stop and I got out of the car so I could take better pictures, but I didn’t care! They were no where near me…but I am not saying break the rules if you go. I just had to for better pictures!

This lonely guy was beautiful.

When we were approaching the end I saw a whole bunch of them, but my boyfriend wouldn’t let me out of the car… so I knelt on the seat and stuck my body out of the window ahaha

Let me know if you would take an extra half hour and do this little drive if you were going to Waterton! Or have you already done it and seen any bison while you were there? I would definitely say it is worth the little bit of extra time driving because you might just see something cool!

Until next time,

xoxo

  1. Beautiful scenery. It’s hard to fathom that at one time in North America, the Bison were so numerous that they turned the “landscape brown as far as the eye could see”, the dust clouds where huge when they were migrating, and “passing herds would take hours to pass”.
