HIGHWAY 2

(Map of Hwy. 2, Alberta.)
Author's note: Original map by RAND McNALLY, butchered by Lee. A Wood

In the Province of Alberta, Canada.

Over the past 60 years, I have ridden, or driven, for pleasure, or gain, from Athabasca to Highway 3, along Highway 2.

Before 2 became 2 A, back when 2 was single lane, unpaved, in each direction.

Most of my travels have been on the stretch between Edmonton and Calgary.

Highway 2, South of Edmonton is known as the Calgary Trail.

Northbound, from Calgary it is known as the Edmonton Trail.

Between Edmonton and Calgary it has been renamed `Queen Elizabeth II Highway'.

Southbound from Calgary it is known as the Macleod Trail.
