Old Farm Wagon, Pincher Creek, Alberta, Canada 01

Description : Where the prairies meet the Rockies.
The continental drift of the Pacific Plate into and under North America forced the wrinkles in the rock on the western edge of the continent that includes the Rocky Mountains. Several ice ages (the last one was only 10,000 years ago) smoothed the land to the east of the mountains and left behind the fertile western plains that today feed the world.

As you travel east, the Rockies give way to rolling foothills that diminish until the vast prairie takes over west of Calgary.
