A picture is worth a thousand words, but one video is even better than that. See this two minute video for driving directions or download it from here (play speed is 5 times of normal so you won’t need to waste the whole 10 minutes it took me to shot this clip)

If you don’t mind watching beautiful Grande Prairie landscapes for ten minutes, see the same clip in real time or download it from here
