In the Milk River region, Pronghorns are at the northern limit of their tolerance for deep snow and extreme temperature fluctuations, making the Alberta population a small fraction of the total continental population of about 1 million.
The Milk River is known as an "underfit" river system because its valley is much larger than its river.

 Maine, Apr 00
Sixteen miles of the 22-mile ride were idyllic, including a picnic lunch on the banks of the river, a rest stop at a beautiful park with fish hatcheries, and a short detour into the picturesque town of Confluence.
But the river road, once we were on it, was disappointing because it was often too far from the banks, and views of the St. Lawrence were infrequent.
The river view campsites were densely crowded and noisy, so we opted for the quieter, more spacious sites back up on the hill with the mosquitoes.

 Science Fair Projects - Cypress Hills Massacre
The Cypress Hills Massacre was a massacre which occurred on June 1, 1873 in the Cypress Hills region of Battle Creek, Saskatchewan, involving a group of American wolf hunters or "wolfers", American and Canadian whiskey traders, Metis freighters and a camp of Nakoda (or Assiniboine) people.
Instead, the wolfers arrived in the Battle Creek valley where the trading posts operated by Abel Farwell and Moses Solomon were located opposite a camp of some 200 to 300 Nakoda people.
Tensions were already somewhat elevated, alcohol had been flowing freely on all sides and a misunderstanding over a missing horse led to a mixed group of wolfers, whiskey traders and Metis freighters opening fire on the Nakoda camp, resulting in 23 confirmed Nakoda deaths and the death of one wolfer, Ed LeGrace.

 Ahern Glacier
Ahern Creek, Glacier, Pass and Peak are named for Lt. George Ahern, who conducted what must have been the most extensive (and intensive) of the early explorations of the Glacier Park country.
On this journey, side trips were made up Cut Bank Creek to the summit; up Swiftcurrent Valley or St. Mary Valley (the records are not clear on this), to the summit; and over the divide from McDonald Creek into the headwaters of the Waterton Valley.
The reconnaissance maps made during the trips were compiled by me at St. Paul in the winter of 1890-91 and later incorporated in the Department of Dakota map of 1891, thus completing another of the many tasks assigned to the army as an advance guard in settlement and development of the western frontier.
