Southern Alberta

SOUTHERN ALBERTA

Have you discovered this part of this beautiful province? It has so much to offer and is easily accessible from the Rockies. From the "ranchlands" to the "Badlands", and let's not forget Drumheller and Dinosaur Provincial Park, Frank Slide in the Crowsnest Pass and Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park near Milk River. There are so many little jewels to discover here in Alberta!


Horse Herd

Pony Up in the Wild West!

At the Howard ranch, it’s pretty much always time to cowboy up. This is the real thing pardner – marked by hard work, love of the land and adversity. By Debra Cummings and courtesy of Travel Alberta.



Life in the Pits

Travel Alberta has written a charming little article called Life in the Pits about the Crowsnest Pass. This place has that special something people are looking for - nature, beauty and history are all around you for you to enjoy.



Frank Slide

In the early morning hours of April 29, 1903, the largest landslide in North American history occurred when the north-east face of Turtle Mountain slid down onto part of the little village of Frank. So much devastation in only 90 seconds. How could this happen?



The Okotoks Erratic

The Okotoks Erratic, also known as "the Big Rock", is the world's largest known glacial erratic. Come and see where this massive boulder came to rest as glaciers receded around 10,000 years ago.




Olympic Torch Relay

The Olympic Torch Relay has been inspiring us here in Canada and it will soon be coming through Southern Alberta to shine a light on a rich heritage just waiting to be explored. Read Olympic Torch Relay - Alberta's Other Speed Racers - By Travel Alberta
