Medicine Hat and Beyond

 

Around Medicine Hat
20120901_medicine-hat_011Sagebrush growing in one of the many parks.
20120901_medicine-hat_021Many steps down from the heights.
20120901_mh-clayworks_011I loved this stool in the Med Alta Pottery museum. So simple and rustic.
20120901_mh-stations-of-the-cross_003This is a clay brick carving by James Marshall. This is one of the 14 stations of the cross.
20120901_medicine-hat_009Police Point Park – one of the many parks in Medicine Hat.

 

A Present to Me
20120902_necklace_002I got this at Lammle’s Western store. It seemed just perfect as it has the blue western stone, and the “carving” is somewhat Nordic, a little bit like my great-grandfather’s artwork. Mom and Dad got me a silver ring that also has carving on it – I love it! They are both the perfect souvenir to this wonderful trip.

 

Drumheller

Calgary and Beyond
20120903_calgary-airport-horses_003This is a great statue, unfortunately a bunch of kids were sitting right against it with all of their luggage – couldn’t they have found a better place to sit where they didn’t block the whole statue? They did move some of their stuff back a bit when it was clear that we wanted to take some photos…
The next few photos don’t really need captions, except to say they were taken as we were ascending into the heavens over Calgary.
