The Sky Shouldn’t Be the Limit: Cattle in the Castle

June 1, 2015

The Front Range Canyons of southwestern Alberta’s Castle region are special places; deeply-cut valleys run in parallel from the high mountains westwards out towards the prairies.  Though this land is all public land, long recognized for its wildlife, recreation, and watershed value, all is not wine and roses in the canyons. In the southern canyons, particularly Spionkop and Yarrow, visitors are increasingly reporting the damage caused by persistent overgrazing.  By Nigel Douglas

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. 

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, 

and the storms their energy,
 while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
