Picture of the Day: Kayaking in Nordegg, Canada
Nordegg is a hamlet in west-central Alberta, Canada within Clearwater County and located in the North Saskatchewan River valley in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.
The area was originally populated for coal mining, however operations in the area ceased in 1955. Since then, Nordegg has become a popular tourist and recreation destination as it is located near numerous parks and recreation areas such as: Ram Falls Provincial Park, the Kootenay Plains Ecological Reserve, and the dozens of small campsites along the David Thompson Highway.
Nordegg is the last community on the David Thompson Highway before reaching Banff National Park to the west. [source]
