Wildflowers, Castle Wildland
A field of wildflowers in the Castle Wildland area, near Waterton National Park in southwest Alberta.<br />

Rather than making this area a Provincial Park as the people of southern Alberta had hoped, the government turned much of the SMAFLUZ (Special Management Area Forest Land Use Zone) over to industry for clearcut logging, oil & gas extraction, and cattle grazing.
