Home of my sister the Wandering Canadian...
"Ode to the Rockies...."
The reason there is a tractor pic on this page is because the first time I went to Cranbrook to visit my sister, my friends and I got lost trying to find her house...She said it was beside the house with the tractor in the back yard, which narrowed it down to half the city...they were parked in people's backyards as if it was their only mode of transportation!
Once we got settled in, though, we realized it is quite a scenic place (although we couldn't see the scenery much since we were in the pubs most of the time...but it looked nice through the window!!!)
My siter goes to College of the Rockies there, and she drove us around the Cranbrook area the last day and it was quite breathtaking. I am personally not much of a "mountain" girl, but for those who are, you would love this area.
