This shot of the expanse of Southern Alberta was taken a year or so ago. It’s a westbound picture on the Crowsnest Highway, (Highway 3) that runs from the eastern border of Saskatchewan and through the Crowsnest Pass into British Columbia. When I get onto this highway I know I have arrived home. The name of the highway is of special interest to me. In the 1980’s when I was a broadcast journalist in Lethbridge Alberta, I served on a Southern British Columbia/Alberta/Saskatchewan development committee engaged in an economic study of the region through which Highway 3 passed. We decided that naming the highway as the Crowsnest Highway would allow a significant branding to take place. History in the region has shown that decision was a good one.
Right Click on the picture and select “View background image” to see the full view. Hope you enjoy the scenery. Based on comments received I’ve corrected the highway number designation. My apologies to all Albertans and others who know better than me. The mea culpa results from a poor memory and having lived away from Alberta for far too long.
