On Books: Dr. Dale Leckie’s ‘The Scenic Geology of Alberta’


With travel outside of the province still not recommended, thousands of Albertans are looking to explore their own backyard once again this summer. If anyone knows the most picturesque spots and interesting roads to take in Alberta, it’s award-winning Calgary geologist, Dr. Dale Leckie.

Dr. Leckie’s new book, The Scenic Geology of Alberta, features trips to Edmonton, Calgary, Crowsnest Pass, Elk Island National Park, and more.

On May 25, Shelf Life Books is hosting a Zoom talk with Dr. Leckie. On the Thursday, May 20, 2021 edition of Traffic Jams at 5:45 PM (MT), CKUA’s Lisa Wilton will chat with him about the unique elements of Alberta’s geology and geography, which make it unique from the rest of Canada, and get some pro-tips for your next staycation road trip.
