I live in Canada in the province of Alberta, and we have Cowboys.

We have lots of other things too, like:

  • the Rocky Mountains, and Jasper and Banff National Parks,
  • wide open prairies and golden fields of canola,
  • the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology and acres of dinosaur fossils,
  • and the Kananaskis River and the Hollywood Hole and dozens of kayakers riding rodeo in the waves.

Yes, it’s true, we have winters that last about six months of the year, and lots of hail and the odd tornado.  But we have more hours of sunshine a year than any other province.

We also have beautiful river valleys and bike paths and the Calgary Flames and some of the best skiing in the world.

We have Corb Lund, born and raised in rural Southern Alberta, and lead singer in the Hurtin’ Albertans.

And we have cowboys.
