Apparently Big Knife Creek was named after a duel to the death between the Cree Big Man and Knife who was a Blackfoot. I am guessing Big Knife won since the creeek is named after him. I was looking for Big Knife School.
This is a small one room school south of Gadsby, Alberta. This is what the rural gravel roads are like in this area at this time of year. I was a little apprehensive about driving on this. I drive a small front wheel drive car and I know from experience that some roads can turn to soup in these conditions. Underneath the slush and the little bit of surface mud the road was solid. The school was just off to the left, or on the north side of the road.
Hisotorical marker. The school was closed in 1943. Still on its original site.
