Calgary, Alberta

Description provided by Editors

The Ranchlands are the region south and west of Calgary encompassing the towns of High River, Nanton, Turner Valley, Black Diamond and Longview. It gets its name from the large ranches established here around the turn of the century, including the North West Cattle Company, now the Bar U, established outside Longview in 1882. The area can be reached by travelling west and south through Kananaskis Country on Hwy 40 (open after mid-June) then east on Hwy 541, or south from Calgary on Hwy 2 or 22.
