The picture below is what it looks like from above. This is a type two medicine wheel east of Carmangay, Alberta. This picture is off the sign at the bottom of the hill put there by the Government of Alberta. This one has not been dated. The Majorville Medicine Wheel which is about sixty kilometres northeast of here is said to be 4,500 years old.
I made the trek here October 26, 2018 with Chris Doering of www.bigdoer.com (go visit his site). I had been wanting to hangout with Chris for some time to do something like this and it was a great time. I thought Chris knew about this place and if you read his blog you would think Chris has already been to all of the interesting places.
You drive due east of Carmangay on one gravel road then take a turn down south down another gravel a short distance then drive about three kilometres on this trail across some rolling prairie hills. We did this in my 2012 Kia Rondo which I do not recommend. You can do it but I suggest you go in a truck or SUV because there is better clearance. We had to dodge some large rocks and drive around some cows that were not interested in moving. There were some unpleasant noises that were the result of the car having less clearance than I thought it possessed.
There is actually a bit of a parking lot just before you trek up to the wheel. The wheel itself is on top of a hill, a high point on this part of the prairie where you can see for miles. The Kia is at the bottom.
The Kia gets even further in the distance as you walk up the hill.
The stone pathway to the centre or the wheel.
The hub of the wheel.
When you are there you can clearly see the stone rings on the hill.
It is interesting, not something that shows up well in pictures. It is a destination that I wanted to mark off my list and glad I got to do it.
