Digital photographs taken with Canon 5D Mark IV, processed with Adobe LightRoom.
Our friends basically have an old school house and a post office in their backyard in the badlands! During our visit we had a look inside and got a good history lesson of the ranch lands, first settlers of this valley, and the Blackfoot people who helped them, got to see some old photos that belong to the descendants, most of their photographs have been donated to the Glenbow now. The school house was super cute, with a coat room, and a massive stove in the basement, you can see the coal room right beside it, with coal still inside. On our hike we saw a couple of small rail lines that connected to Saskatoon and Calgary. The post office was still in use til the 70s! My kids enjoyed the old school swing in the school yard until one got 'bonked' in the head.
This is in the Rosebud Valley, or rather, by the river of many roses, Akokiniskway.
