Last Saturday my wife, oldest son and I were in Drumheller for the funeral of the father to some good friends from back in high school days. What a fantastic man he was too!

We got into town a bit early and so we walked along main street for a couple of blocks and found the “Sports Room” entrance. Unfortunately the town feels pretty run down and almost uninviting. A real shame as the potential is huge!

 

 

Later in the evening we left before sunset as I don’t like driving central Alberta highways at night because of all the deer and moose. As we got near the small town of Carbon we found these silos glinting from the sun.
