Lots of nothing punctuated by the occasional something

Parts of Alberta are very flat with lots of empty space that all looks the same. Here and there something will break up the landscape with nothing near by for miles. I often wonder how people kept from getting lost on the prairie years ago with no landmarks to guide them. This is a bit west of Drumheller, Alberta.

  1. Texas has a lot of nothing with occasional something...usually a fence pole laying on its side.

  2. Well, if there's anything there to find, I rest assured that YOU are the man to find it BW! :)

  3. That is an interesting question... how did they not get lost? I'd have made a very bad pioneer...bad sense of direction,but the unintended side trips I take can be fun...LOL
