Quiz Description

If there were any other Albertans here on Alpaca Farm, this may be too easy. But since Alberta is an oft-forgotten swath of America's hat, I think we're in good shape. All answers will also be the name of a city, town, village, or hamlet in "Wild Rose Country." Spelling will count.
