Alberta is a vast province. You get an idea of its size driving many hours to some of the northern communities -- High Level, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, or Peace River (pictured here). Despite its northern location, the Peace River country is reputed for its farmland. The majestic Peace River originates in the mountains of British Columbia and flows northeastward, joining the Athabasca, and eventually ending up in the Mackenzie River system and Beaufort Sea.
