Photographer's Note

The Cypress Hills Park is a unique wildlife preserve and remote retreat for hikers. For over 7000 years the Plains Indians wintered here because the area is rich in food supplies, fuel,and building materials for lodges. This is the first interporvincial park established in Canada.

Some 700 species of plants and 220 bird species are found in the park, which rises 600 metres above the lower ranchland. Moose, deer and elk are plentiful.
