>What does one need to cross the border into Canada in the way of ID? Hope to get up to see the bluetail. Thanks in advance for any info.
Assuming that you are a US Citizen and crossing by land (not air), a
valid passport OR NEXUS/FAST card, OR Enhanced Drivers Licence (a
standard DL is not acceptable). There are a couple of special cases.
Please remember that certain items that are common in the USA may be
prohibited in Canada, including Firearms/Ammunition. If you fly, only a
passport is required.
Amateur photographers should have no problem, if you are a
professional, you may face other requirements (ie work permit).
Last fall I entered WA at the same crossing on 3 consecutive days, day
1, no problem, day 2 same officer - wanted to know if I was a pro, day
3 waved through....
