The Bow River is a river in the Canadian province of Alberta. It begins in the Rocky Mountains and winds through the Alberta foothills onto the prairies where it meets the Oldman River, the two then forming the South Saskatchewan River.
The Oldman River is a river in southern Alberta, Canada. It flows roughly west to east from the Rocky Mountains, through the communities of Fort Macleod, Lethbridge, and on to Grassy Lake, where it joins with the Bow River to form the South Saskatchewan River, which eventually drains into the Hudson Bay.
From its source in Crowsnest Lake at an elevation of about 1,357 metres (4,452 ft) in the Canadian Rockies, it meanders eastward through the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass and the Frank Slide. It passes into the foothills near Burmis and reaches the western margin of the Alberta plains near Lundbreck. It then joins the Oldman River Reservoir at an elevation of about 1,110 metres (3,640 ft).
The Waterton River flows northeast from the Waterton Lakes to merge with the Belly River north of Stand Off, Alberta. It is interrupted in its journey by the Waterton Reservoir.
