End Note and Links
I hope that you enjoyed this brief fall photographic visit to one of Alberta's little known Special Places. The Bob Creek Wildland was a result of the Alberta Special Places program and years of hard work by dedicated citizens and organizations such as the Alberta Wilderness Association who understood the value of conserving such places and educated the public and public officials about it.
I'd especially like to thank Michael Taje, Conservation Officer of the South West Area, Parks Division for his helpful advice about where to spend my day in Bob Creek, to Joyce Hildebrand who so kindly guided me to the park, and my friend & Conservationist George Newton who so often told me about the beauty of the place. I don't know him, but thanks also to Bob Blaxley whose book, "The Whaleback: A Walking Guide" is one of the best hiking and natural history books I've come across about any park. If you're planning an excursion into the area, I highly recommend it.
