The Old Hazzard Place

This abandoned ranch sits in the Eagle Butte area of
the Cypress Hills in Alberta.  Some of the buildings
here date back at least one hundred years.  It's a long
time since anyone has lived here; during the summer
months cattle graze on the hillsides.

The ranchers who lived here were named Hazzard, and
coincidentally, the man who manages the garage where
I get my car maintained, is a close relative
to the these folks.

The hills were showing signs of life; the grass was
beginning to turn green and the some of the early
spring flowers were in full bloom.

    1. It's a beautiful area, Jenn, but the winter can be brutal out there. Those old homesteaders were tough people.
