Tam is always finding something to keep busy at. Here she is carving a rocking horse for the grandson.

Late last fall I was down helping the tourism committee put up a new fence around the cellar hole from the NWMP barricks. With the snow we had Saturday I figure it would be a good time to burn the pile of scrap.

A little snow covered but this is the sandstone cellar built by James Marshall. It's a cistern in the near corner.

This plaque is on a stone cairn beside the cellar.

This one was added at a later date honoring the Last Mounted horse patrol along the border. He met my grandparents along with my Dad and aunt in 1938 in Carlisle coulee. So name for the ex mountie gone bad that was taken out and shot by some outlaws for missing blowing up a bridge in a botched train robbery.

Carlise coulee across the valley.

The hills showing above the tree is Montana

This is the spring that the mounties diverted down a trench to fill the house cistern and then off to water the garden.

This is Britt taking some pictures of her own. The hitchin' rail was built when they dedicated the stone cairn. Montie Montana who had live about 5 miles up along the border was here for the dedication.

Nice pictures of historical significance. So living only five miles away, did Montie Montana just ride his horse over for the dedication?

You have more snow than we do, but I think that might change in the next twenty-four hours. Either yours might melt, or we might get some, only time will tell. :wink:

Sadly he was living in California at the time of the dedication. :(

It was kinda funny though as the team that was to bring him and some other dignitaries a little ways down the road got balky . Montie got out and took the whip and was cracking them on the legs. I think everybody got out and walked the rest of the way. I was talking to the owner of the team about this just last fall. He sold them and they stalled out on the new owner in a parade as well.

Afraid you would have more then a "Split personality" if you tried to visit gcreek and me in the same day. :D

Tam already has a pony but the poor kid lives in Alberta and they don't allow ponies in the backyards of Sylvan Lake. :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:
