Near Cessford, Alberta

November 11, 2015. Some enterprising soul years ago built a small house in the middle of nowhere on the open prairie. Some of these look the same, I wanted to get a number of photos from different angles on this. 

This had to be an ambitious undertaking. The river is about eighteen kilometres away. There area is almost devoid of trees. I would like to know how old it is and how long someone lived here. The big challenge years ago would be to avoid going mad in the middle of the open prairie being so isolated. The loneliness and hard living conditions must have got to more than a few people.

A long line of tumbleweeds that are trapped by miles of fence.


  1. Almost looks like the ruins of castles in England.

  2. I dunno, big sky country. Might not be so bad.

  3. It looks like a Stonehenge) It is so great on a photo!

    1. I thought it had a Stonehenge-like look to it as well. I recently read a post on another site that the home was built in 1912.
