Day off, tired and unmotivated to post much.
Saw this on June 30, 2018 north of Andrew, Alberta.

Is that you may encounter hazards like this.
This is a real sign in Alberta on Range Road 143 that is here: 53.861175, -112.009857
The large hill just a little north on this road has two hairpin curves. The road is not as steep as depicted. Driving up it was not a problem.

A small cemetery I visited in the Lac Pelletier area of Saskatchewan late this past winter. It is well cared for and obviously loved.
The footprints at the "Angel" gravesite are from a family member who was just leaving as I arrived. We had a nice chat about life and death and all those things that happen in between.
The deep sea blue of the shadows are so striking at that time of year.

Tiny Orthodox Church located at: 53.889619, -111.837167
Ispas School sits abandoned west of here on the same township road. Just east of here is Ispas Hall.
Bell tower in the background. The grounds are well kept and there are some relatively recent burials. I do not know if the church is still in use.
A close up of a few of the more interesting headstones.

Saint Margaret's Church had her 110th anniversary last weekend. A special service was held on the Sunday and was attended by 28 people. 4 of those attendants drove up from Montana for the occasion. An American flag was raised at the church to welcome the visitors and to make them feel at home. The flag has been flying high alongside the Canadian flag since that Sunday.
Happy Birthday America!

About two weeks ago the pink fields just north of the Cypress Hills were in full bloom along Eagle Butte Road. Pretty!
Since that time it has all been swathed and baled. Looking forward to seeing it again next year.
