Despite what media reports might have you believe, there are still many areas within the Province of Alberta that are unspoiled by human industry. The majority of the province's mountainous terrain lies along its southwestern flank, where the spine of the Canadian Rockies follows its course from British Columbia into the northern tip of Jasper National Park, and down south through Waterton Lakes National Park towards the United States.
