The Town of Pincher Creek is the Wind Capital of Canada. Nestled against the Rockies in Southwestern Alberta, Pincher Creek enjoys warm Chinook winds that compress and collect energy as they rush down the eastern slopes. The Pincher Creek area offers the wind energy industry the ideal geographical area for developments in alternative, renewable energy technology and is playing a key role in the development of this increasingly important sustainable energy resource.
I’m happy to say the storm on the horizon never matured to interfere with my photography that day. On our way back to Waterton NP where we were camped, we were able to take a side trip off the beaten path for some more interesting sights.
