Dunphy, Alberta

I knew there was a coal mining settlement of some kind here years ago. I just could not find much on it. I drove to where it should be which is a little north and west of Drumheller, Alberta just a few miles off the highway on a gravel road. The graveyard seems to be the only trace of a town. There is evidence of a rail line and it is heavily grown over. There are a couple of relatively recent graves in the cemetery.

The bridge on this rail line was taken out years ago and the rail line is heavily grown over.
