Photo: Cameron Falls Waterton Lakes National Park Alberta

Cameron Falls seem to pour straight out of the rock in Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada. These falls are located in a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve so this is considered a protected area.

Cameron Falls located in Waterton Townsite in Waterton Lakes National Park is not a traditional waterfall as the water slopes down towards the pool at the bottom and does not come straight down the rock. It almost looks like the waterfall is coming down a set of steps in order to reach the water pool at the bottom. Waterton Lakes National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve so it is a protected area.

One of the most stunning elements to Cameron Falls is that it flows down exposed bedrock dating back to the Precambrian era, so it is estimated to be about 1.5 billion years old. This is the oldest bedrock in the entire Rocky Mountain Range so people come here to see the rock that existed when creatures and insects roamed the earth that no longer exist. ... continue below the picture...

Cameron Falls is protected but that does not mean that visitors cannot come here, take pictures, and admire just how old this area is. At night if you are strolling around here, the falls are lit up so you can admire them when the lights are glinting off the water and the area is quiet and serene except for the sound of Cameron Falls rushing over the 1.5 billion year old rock.
