Driving into Cranbrook BC (at the foot of the Rockies) is like driving into one of those padded-foam-and-vinyl placemats...the postcards just don't do it justice. Breathtaking.
Also, we saw a stretch of brush about 120 km's west of Swift Current that was absolutely jam-packed full of prarie dogs. We're talking ant-farm colony busy with the little critters.
