Location: Taken last winter, near dusk in the Historical Quarry Park at Stonewall, Manitoba, Canada.

Situated near the edge of town, the current site landscape reflects the effects of almost one hundred years of quarrying activity at that location. Today the visitor can view the remnants of exposed limestone ledges, butte formations, excavations and a quarry pond. Dominating the landscape are three massive “draw” kilns, as well as the ruins of early “pot” kilns used in the limestone burning process. Developers have facilitated interpretation at the quarry through the use of pathways, outdoor signage, and a small amphitheatre for the presentation of interpretive talks and shows.The Stonewall Quarry Park has been maintained as a natural area on the edge of town and provides picnic facilities and walking trails for visitors and residents alike.
