While driving between Waterton Park and Pincher Creek, Alberta, Canada, I came across three of these beautiful old wagons lined up in a pasture. Who could resist.

    I was thinking about you today, wondering (silly question) how you and your family were.

  • thanks first of all for the thoughts hon, I guess this is the first day I am really spending some time here. We are fine, thanks – kids have returned to Alberta, and we hope to be back to normal, getting there :-))

    How many of these abandoned wagons do we see scattered all over the plains? This is a great capture Vickie. The brown tones are beautiful here. Barb

  • thank you Barb, seeing these is another favorite object to shoot. I love them so much, and this stop was a bonus, I have three different wagons at this scene, more to come :-)) Glad you like it
