#Winterlust Photos Prove Alberta’s The Prettiest Province In Winter

It’s been pretty cold in Alberta the past few days. Like, -40 C-with-the-windchill cold.

But, instead of complaining, Travel Alberta is reminding you to embrace the frosty weather and appreciate the province’s wintry beauty.

Using the hashtag #winterlust, the tourism group has been sharing some amazing photos by various photographers that showcase Alberta’s beautiful snowy backdrop.

You can check out a sample of the photos below, and check out more on Instagram and Twitter.

“Adventure is a journey that becomes a path through life, it’s the product of chasing dreams and following curiosity. It rewards those that challenge the perception of what is possible and honours determination above strength and youth. It’s a powerful experience, what does it mean to you?” – @calsnape
