There seems to be no commonly agreed-upon way to organize or subdivide Alberta,
so I've roughly adopted the Indian regions map, as it appears to group areas
by population centers as well as geography.
Yellow = Edmonton area
Light Orange / Tan = Camrose-Drumheller area
Light blue = Red Deer area
Gray = Calgary area
Blue-purple = Southeast Alberta, including Medicine Hat and Lethbridge
Blue = Northwest Alberta, including Grand Prairie and Athabasca
Green = Northeast Alberta, including Fort McMurray
Orange = Southwest Alberta, including Banff, Jasper and Rocky Mountain House
