#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.
