Just when you think the morning couldn't possibly get better, a slight stirring in the brush to your right makes you glance over. You can barely see them, but they're there - a family of White Tailed deer; a mother and her offspring, standing as still as statues, their dark eyes fixed upon you waiting to see what you'll do. You'll be amazed what you see when you wander through the wonderland of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. Every step is in the direction of indigenous beauty, and an opportunity to interact with the abundance of outdoor southern Alberta.

10.00 kilometer(s) from Fort Whoop Up, as you drive down the winding coulee road toward Fort Whoop-Up, the city slips away and time turns back to a point in history when the west was truly wild. The Fort stands proud and sturdy against the hillside, staring at you with eyes from the past, barely containing the lingering whispers of traders and scoundrels long since gone. Before Lethbridge was so much as a whistle stop on the rail line, there was a thriving trading post in the valley near where the city now stands. Fort Whoop-Up was a place where frontier adventurers and Blackfoot warriors came to barter animal pelts, buffalo robes and horses for valuable commodities such as cloth, consumer goods, tobacco and whiskey. The trading days are over, but Fort Whoop-Up's colorful characters are still here. They're seen throughout the summer in spontaneous skits around the grounds. Brace yourself - gunfights have been known to break out, and there's daily cannon fire.
