When we looked at the map closely, we discovered (several years ago actually) two towns in south-central Alberta with my not-so-common first and second names. So on one of our trips between Lethbridge and Edmonton we went in search of the towns of Millicent and Patricia. Interestingly enough these two places were located within 10 km of one another.
|Someone liked my name enough to name a community Millicent.|
|This road is all there is to the unincorporated community. Lovely|
farm land all around.
|And then there's Patricia. A small town at the gateway to the|
Alberta Badlands and Dinosaur Provincial Park. Every small town
in Alberta has an annual rodeo and Patricia is no exception.
|Many dinosaur fossils and bones have been found in the Alberta |
Badlands, making it quite an popular area for naturalists.
Here's a few more Alberta sights.
|Every town has it's claim to fame! Potatoes are Vauxhall's.|
|This bridge is located by a recreational area not far from Drumheller|
|Pigeon Lake near Edmonton|
|Prairie Sunset with windmills near Taber|
|Twilight and granddaughter at Henderson Lake in the middle of Lethbridge|
|Mountain in Banff National Park|
|Cameron Falls in Waterton Park|
|Oversize traffic that forces other vehicles off the side of the road.|
|Oil jacks and bales of hay coexisting in the fields|
|And lest you think Alberta is all rural, here's some|
of Calgary's buildings.
And there you have it - a thumbnail sketch of my adopted province. Come visit sometime. You won't regret it.
