Lakes

The deepest lake in the Canadian Rockies (444 feet) and the first oil well in western Canada (1902) are both found in Waterton, a small park named in honor of English naturalist Charles Waterton. Set in a region renowned for its winds, Waterton has special significance as the Canadian portion of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.

My most challenging hike every I think - Crypt Lake in Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada.  You take a boat across the lake from Prince of Wales to start it.
