Calgary lies at the heart of southern Alberta's most spectacular landscape, a landscape that includes the fantastically shaped hoodoos of Drumheller and the mountains of Kananaskis country. Now in full color, this completely updated and expanded edition of the regional bestseller Day Trips from Calgary is an insider's handbook to discovering the best routes and destinations within a two-hour drive of the city. Locals and tourists alike need only a tank of gas, a road map, and perhaps a picnic lunch and a pair of hiking shoes to make the most of Bill Corbett's insightful guide. Written to entice Calgary residents and visitors into considering all directions of the compass when embarking on a day trip from the city, Day Trips from Calgary covers all the territory travellers will find useful.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The real shrine is the Gopher Hole Museum. Its 40-plus miniature displays, with nicely painted backdrops, feature taxidermied gophers dressed in costumes. They whimsically and quite comically depict various aspects of village life, real and fictional—from a wedding and a church service to a hunting scene and a bank holdup.
