A trip along a road called the Crowsnest Highway 3 will take you on a journey through the wild wild west of Southern Alberta, Canada.
Highway 3 provides the visitor access to many historic towns and sites, a popular UNESCO World Heritage Site, geological anomalies, and the great expanses of rolling countryside which Alberta is well known for.
Cattle ranches have dominated much of land in the interior for over 100 years, as well as wheat producers whose massive metal work beasts dominate the secondary back roads as they're moved from field to field. Looking further back in history, and by taking a short deviation off the main road along Highway 785, brings you to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump - a once important buffalo jump site for the Aboriginal people who roamed the plains.
Whichever way you look at it, Southern Alberta is a treasure chest of discoveries and possibilities, and the best road to take to explore it is the Crowsnest Highway.
