The Prairies

We so often visit southern Alberta, because we have 2 children living in the area, but other than admiring the scenery, take few pictures.  Because this visit was part and parcel of our cross-country trip, photos just automatically became part of the drive.

Southern Alberta is farming/ranching country.  In the southwest the hills roll away from the mountains:


Giving way to flat, flat prairie that stretches out as far as the eye can see:

And even out in the elements, the dry weather preserves old artifacts:


Even the people seem to get preserved out here.  We talked with one farmer, not that old, who just had that look of prairie preservation – wish I’d been bold enough to ask for a picture. 

After a few days in Alberta, we headed for home – now we’re home and all of this past 3 months is just a memory.  But what fabulous memories.  Thanks to all of you who joined us on this journey through this blog.

Happy travels!   Blessings, Peg


  1. What is it about artifacts?? I just love them and things from days gone by.

  2. If only those old wagons could talk...
