Two words immediately come to my mind if I were to describe Northern Alberta: Oil and Cold. Oil sands could be found relatively easily within the Northern Alberta region. This pushes the Canadian economy forward as gasoline and other petroleum products are becoming higher in demand. Northern Alberta is also about the subzero temperature. The region of Northern Alberta mostly contains very cold, long winters and warm, short summers. Fort McMurray, for example, one of the famous urban communities located in the Wood buffalo municipality, has only a yearly mean temperature of 0.7 degrees Celsius. Nonetheless, Northern Alberta is also a land of recreation activities and wild adventures. On the other side of the Northern Alberta map, we have included a map of Jasper National Park. This park is situated deep in the Alberta Rockies and is surrounded by mountains. Although it is dissected by the Trans-Canada Highway, this park remains as one of the most pristine and wild parks of Canada. This park is a must-see as it can be reached with ease and has amazing natural features. Included insets of this map are Jasper and Edmonton.
