Highway 6 south of Pincher Creek, Alberta on a fantastically sunny January 1, 2016. There are times when you just have to get out and get somewhere.
The general store and a few residents is all there is to Twin Butte. It really sounds like a place name that you would find in Montana.
There was a sign on the window that the post office is operating on reduced hours due to decreased demand. Fewer people in the area and other means of communication are taking their toll. I like to see that this one is still operating. My grandmother worked in a general store and running the post office was one of her duties. The Twin Butte post office first started operating June 1, 1905.
You know you are in cattle country when you see signs like this.
Highway 22 is commonly referred to as The Cowboy Trail. Highway 6 runs by Twin Butte. I like the sign.
I have to come down here on the motorcycle and come here when it is open. A place that is a general store, post office, and serves Mexican food is one of those places you just have to visit.
There are no cacti of this type in Alberta. I have seen quite a few of these in farmyards and find it amusing whenever I see one. This is close to the Twin Butte Country Restaurant sign alongside the highway.
