Connecting to Canadian cell tower from US

AT&T - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com - forums.androidcentral.com
I was visiting Whidbey Island in the State of Washington and while on the North end of the island at Deception Pass Park my Galaxy S7 locked into a Canadian cell tower and I got the text message, "Welcome to Canada. Roaming charges now apply for data" (something to that effect). Looking on a map I was still well within the US borders by maybe 35 miles or so, with several other smaller US islands (San Juans) between me and Victoria, BC.

So, why was my phone connecting to the Canadian cell tower? Is there a way to force my phone to only connect to US towers in this instance? I'd like to know in case I'm near the Canadian border in the future. Thanks.
