Pssst … there is not one but TWO Bolers parked side by side in the back alley (address not shown) (Bridgeland). One has a unique mural on the back of it!

Chris::

I am the producer in the US that is looking for a setting to interview a Canadian author. Just spoke with you on the phone. Do you have any contact info for the church in Couval, SK (St. Josephs)? We’d like to be able to shoot our interview outside the church, but would also like to be able to get in the church and perhaps do some b-roll.

We also discussed the church you are currently headed to to photograph. Would it be possible to see any photos of that setting?

Thanks for your help, I have enjoyed your blogs and photos.

I was born in 1948 and lived in East Coulee until 1952.After that I returned there most summers to stay with my grandparents in the 50s and 60s.Millers Bakery& Cafe. A great deal of my time was spent diving off the bridge. Awesome to say the least. Pete Charlie (Miner) used to dive from the top of the bridge. Amazing !! Loved East Coulee. Still go on that bridge when I am out from BC

I noticed in the article they refereed to the grain elevators at Josephburg. My mother was born on -1905 at Josephburg Ab. At that time Josephburg was loacted north of Cypress Hills ab in the Robinson school district. It was then moved to present location. Have you ever heard of any history to verify this?

The CPR tracks, east end of downtown Calgary, fifty years apart.

How come the “new” pic doesn’t have the new big city downtown buildings, yet the “old” train shows all the downtown high-rises?

ps. my hometown is Calgary…altho’ born in Hanna…my father worked at the Hanna Roundhouse.

Regarding your hikes in Crowsnest Pass.
Bellevue is no longer a “town” nor is Coleman, Hillcrest Mines, Frank or Blairmore. They were amalgamated over thirty five years ago and now it is the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass. They are now referred to as the community of Bellevue or community of Frank, or community of Blairmore or community of Hillcrest Mines. If you must, call them the former town of…

Love your article on hiking the Bow River Valley and locating the site where the movie Open Range was filmed in 2002. I am researching this film and trying to locate the exact position of the movie town “Harmonville” torn down after the movie was completed. Your description of your hike gives some good clues however finding the exact place is frustrating to find. I disagree that it wasn’t a great western film but that is subjective by any measure. A marker or comment on Google Earth or Bing Maps as to the exact location would be terrific. Any information would be greatly appreciated by myself and Kevin Costner film lovers. Thank You!

Chris and or Connie, I’m intrested in a hike that I can sleep overnight in the Wilderness this summer. I was thinking pickle jar lakes as I’m from Calgary and it does not seem to far away. Would you recommend another hike that an overnight stay would be full of amazing views and solidarity?

Thanks

I follow you on Facebook and thoroughly enjoy your “verbose” articles! Photos often need context and your articles provide it. There are lots of sites that publish thousands of pictures with little or no text…maybe folks that don’t like to read should look elsewhere.

Thank you! I thoroughly enjoyed your pictures and history of the prairie grain elevators. My husband and I are planning a trip to investigate the Canadian prairies. Ian (husband) is from England and was taught in school about the harvesting of wheat in Canada. He is soooooo looking forward to experience this first hand. We live in Penticton and have a week off and I appreciate all the work you both have done to make our trip unforgettable. Cheers! Holly and Ian

Hello Chris,

I happened upon your website by accident via a High River trails post (elsewhere). Very interesting -your calling, and appreciate the sense of intellectual/historical as well as geographical exploration. Too often, outdoor pursuits (esp. as advanced by clubs) seem superficial and somewhat selfish in their objective (whether it is to ‘bag a peak’ or another ‘bucket list’ item). Little effort is dedicated to understanding the historical, cultural and/or ecological ‘sense of place’ more deeply. Will be in touch and perhaps we will cross paths in the future.

Regards,

Hi Chris and Connie, I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for the work you do on the website. I’ve lived out here on the prairies for a few years and have been trying to visit as many of the small towns and old relics, when time permits. I will often visit your site first for inspiration…

Thanks once again and maybe we will cross paths one day while out searching – Cheers!
