Old, abandoned farm

Old, abandoned farm
On 30 March 2015, I went SE of Calgary, driving the backroads through the farmlands. I had been meaning to drive further than I'd driven in that area, and this day I went as far as Vulcan. Just like I have done a few times before, I went on Google and Google Earth beforehand, searching for any barns that were in the new part of my drive. Nothing truly spectacular, but I did manage to find a few that made the drive worthwhile. 234 km total, 5 1/4 hour trip.

I was so looking forward to reading about this old homestead and the barns and sheds that share the same old farmyard. So far, after just a quick Google search, I have found nothing about the history of the site. I posted a couple of closer views of the site the last couple of days.

The weather was beautiful, with a sky full of clouds for at least the first part of my drive. What you can't see is that it was very windy, as it so often is in this whole area. You also can't see all the bees that were buzzing round my car a couple of times when I got out to take a few photos.
