“If you take away all the prairie dogs, there will be no one to cry for the rain.”
Terry Tempest Williams
Since we have cancelled our fall trip to the cabin to
deal with some issues here I have decided to look
at some of the photos from our trip in July. On our
way to visit some friends we stopped at Oyen. We
did not visit the town we only stopped at the visitor
center. This a beautiful old thresher.
This is a Richardson's Ground Squirrel this is the most common
ground squirrel found in Alberta. Erroneously referred to as gophers
and much maligned in agricultural areas they still persist even
occupying areas within the city and sadly, dead gophers beside the
highway are a sure sign of Spring in Alberta.
"Men learn from other men what they know of themselves,
of the world in which they must live. and of the world in
which they would like to live."
