The reason for the trip to Ribstone was to see the country where my husband’s family settled when they first came to Alberta in the early 1900’s. We knew none of the old buildings would be left so we headed to the cemetery.
These are the gravestones of my husband’s great-grandparents.
The babies who would have been my husband’s Uncle and Aunt
A few miles past Wainwright we came upon a little gem on the prairies. In a little valley was beautiful Clear Lake. The lake was deserving of its name with water so clear you could see the ripples in the sand.
