Beautiful Disintegration

I frequently drive the Eagle Butte Road between
Dunmore, Alberta and the Cypress Hills and
whenever I reach that intersection with the
"Summer Road Only" sign I always slow down
a little and look eastward.  As often as not I'll
drive down a few miles to take some photos of
the beautifully disintegrating church. The road
will now be impassable for the next several
months but I can't wait to see it again next year.
This is one of my favourite photo stops and the
following photos are my favourites from 2017.

Previously posted photos of the Congregational
Church and Cemetery at Gros Ventre-Tothill
can be seen here:

    1. Thanks, Jenn. A long time has passed since the last church service took place here.
