Chief Mountain Road

Jann Ashworth

North Saanich, Canada

Artist's Description

Highway 6 in South-West Alberta, Canada, runs southward and enters the USA, where it becomes Montana highway 17, but not all year. In the winter months it’s closed, because it runs through some high ranges of the Rocky Mountains which join Glacier Park in Montana and Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada. Together they form the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area is also the backbone of the continental divide and offers spectacular mountain scenery of all kinds. It’s called Chief Mountain Road because it skirts the side of this iconic mountain, but that’s not the one shown here. To be honest, I don’t have a name for it..there’s just too many! It doesn’t appear to be well-traveled, but we found it offered wonderful varieties of scenery and is well worth exploring.
