It's Alberta, so there is a lot of skies and a lot of sunshine. Local lakes beckon you for swimming, boating or fishing and recreation areas entice you into either chasing a baseball or disappearing in a good book. If you're after either activity or relaxation, you're covered.

It's the country, but it isn't necessarily quiet. Whether it is the low hoot of a great horned owl, the slough songs of the boreal chorus frog or the eerie call of a mother fox luring danger away from her kits, there is always something going on at midnight.
