These photo’s were taken on June 29th at the Bar U Ranch by Longview, Alberta. This is a very special place for Albertans as it recreates the life of a cowboy in Alberta in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. There are historic buildings, volunteers who take you on wagon rides, brew up Cowboy Coffee over an open fire and a cook who bakes in an old fashioned oven. The ranch has a blacksmith shop, barns, old farming equipment and lots of things to experience. If you find yourself down that way, stop into the restaurant for a hearty bowl of old fashioned beef and barley soup.
A real bonus – if you have a Canada Parks Pass entry is free.
