Alberta has some fantastic features that range from the magnificent Rocky Mountains to the Badlands of Drumheller and everything in between. With so much to see and do, it is easy to not know where to start. When I am looking for travel inspiration, I flip through the web looking for local Alberta travel blogs to follow. I wanted to share with you my list of travel inspirations for the year! Here they are, in no particular order.
Note: Be sure to click the links and see their fantastic posts for yourself!
