Every year, I make at least one trip to this, one of my favorite places. It's a National Park in the Rockies, west of Edmonton. The symbol of the park is a friendly bear, but personally I think it should be a bighorn sheep. You almost always will see these beautiful animals, either in the townsite, on the surrounding roads, or in one of the campgrounds. What park am I thinking of?
I make a point every year of attending this festival, in the North Saskatchewan River valley. It celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2005, and has had such famous guests as Taj Mahal, Elvis Costello, John Prine, Donovan, and many others. What festival am I thinking of?
Calgary Folk Fest
Edmonton Folk Fest
West of Calgary, where the prairies meet the mountains, is traditional ranch country. Some of the ranches around the little towns like Black Diamond, Turner Valley, and Longview have been in the same family for more than a hundred years. West of these foothills, and east of Banff National Park, there is a mix of provincial parks and recreation areas known as what?
Land of the Midnight Sun
Red Coat Trail
There's a large lake in the northern half of the province, with beautiful sandy beaches (unusual for Alberta) all along the southern shore. For many years this lake was the site of the Joussard Folk Festival, known as the North Country Fair. What lake am I thinking of?
Lesser Slave Lake
Great Slave Lake
Sometimes I just want to put on my bathing suit, and visit Miette, in Alberta, or slip over the border to Liard River, BC in the north, or Radium, BC in the south. What is the attraction, that tempts me to display my ample charms in my hot pink swimsuit?
Giant Wave Pools
I haven't visited this attraction since I was a child, but I always mean to get down to Calgary, every summer. I'm not really that big a rodeo fan, I guess, though there is plenty else to do besides watching the rodeo and the chuckwagon races. It says it is Canada's biggest outdoor event - it's been going since 1886, with the first rodeo in 1912. What event do I mean?
(two words - Wilf Carter song)
I don't always go away in the summer - I usually spend some time around home, especially in berry season. Our best, and best known, prairie berry looks something like a blueberry, but is both tarter and sweeter than even a wild blueberry. It was used by First Nations people to make pemmican, and by settlers (and people like me!) for pie. What is this berry, which shares a name with a prairie city?
One of the lesser known gems of this province is a provincial park in the far south, with a great collection of petroglyphs. What ARE petroglyphs, anyway?
When the kids were little, we visited this town every summer. We'd camp a few miles outside of town, near the Bleriot Ferry, and drive past Horsethief Canyon to get to town. A stop at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology was essential, and long look through the fossil shops. It's a tacky kind of town, with giant dinosaurs everywhere, but it sure was near to a small boy's heart. What town am I thinking of?
Not far from Fort Macleod, in southern Alberta, you will find a place called Head-Smashed-In. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but what IS it?
Rock formation in the shape of a head
