Destinations Magazine - May/June 2018 - 50
We asked ABA member Nagel Tours of Edmonton, Alberta,
what group destinations in Alberta it likes the most. Nagel's
senior tour planner and product buyer, Ruth Drynan, has
lived in the province for 50 years. Here's what she had
"My favorite places are the quieter ones. The scenery in
Waterton Lakes National Park in southern Alberta is absolutely beautiful, thanks to the blue, blue waters of its lakes,
and it's quieter than Banff or Jasper. Northeast of Calgary,
the Drumheller area is beautiful desert-like country that
has many little places I like. This area is studded with hoodoos (weathered sandstone rocks) and huge cliffs that have
a river running through the middle of them. They were
formed during the Ice Age and look like those in Utah's
Zion National Park."
