Each Tuesday, we will feature a place in Canada (or international!) with a Vimy Ridge connection. Today we highlight Vimy Peak in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta.
In Waterton Lakes National Park, located in the southwest corner of Alberta, Canada, you will find the majestic Vimy Peak. Originally, this geographic feature was referred to as ‘Sheep Mountain’ or ‘Goat Mountain’, but in 1917, after the historic battle, it was officially renamed to Vimy Peak in honour of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. These days, it is a popular hiking destination very near to the border of the United States.
