Love the idea of an Alberta quiz, so thank you! I do want to offer some feedback on this quiz in particular though as a fellow(?) Alberta resident.

1. For the "Iconic glacially fed lake" clue, I feel like Lake Louise is at around the same level of notoriety as Moraine Lake, maybe there's a way to make the clue less ambiguous?

2. For the "National park in those mountains" clue, same "problem" as before. Banff was already mentioned so the average quiz taker could deduce that that answer is off the table, but Waterton Lakes national park is also located in the Rockies. So again, narrow down the clue a bit more perhaps?

3. "Biggest city in southern Alberta". As a resident of Calgary, this is the first time in my life I'm not seeing "Calgary" as the answer to that question. Maybe "biggest city south of Calgary" is a more justifiable clue?

Thank you for the Alberta content on this website though! Really appreciate it keep up the good work!

Updated the lake and national park questions, but with cities in north and south Alberta i go with these definitions. Thank you though :)
