Nature and history are the highlights in gorgeous Cypress County, in southeast Alberta. Take refuge in leafy Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park - straddling the Saskatchewan border - which rises dramatically above the surrounding prairie and is the highest point in Canada between the Rocky Mountains and Newfoundland. Relive the county's rich history by visiting community museums and retracing the arrival of the North West Mounted Police along today's Red Coat Trail. Communities in Cypress County: Redcliff
