17 pictures that will show you why Alberta, Canada is amazing

Lately, I’ve been going on and on (and on) about how much I love Canada. Pretty much just because it is sooo true. Also, I was wondering if I should write a post about the province  I know quite well by now and that is Alberta.
But a problem occurred, how to put something so wonderful in few words. An article?

After I gave it some thought, I decided to show you what I mean in pictures. After all, it is well known that each picture is worth a thousand words. Even though it is just  seventeen pictures and that is nowhere near around being enough, I am pretty sure you’ll get the point!

All of these pictures below were taken with my phone and there is no Photoshop involved. Partially because my PS skills are still very poor at this point and partially because hey, Alberta needs no photo-shopping.  😀
