On The Cowboy Trail, near Longview, prairie, oil and mountains come together.

Forest fires in BC and Montana have been painting our skies red, leading to some fiery sunsets over bales of hay. It was the second hottest July on record in our area.

Deer graze on a hillside at sunset . . . . this scene plays out every evening next to our home.

That's the nightly scene taken from my driveway. The sunset is also from my yard.

Here's some fowl contestant's at the Millarville Country Fair on Saturday.

There was a $1,000 prize for the best blueberry pie this year . . . . a 13 year-old had the best of 83 entries.

More fair and market pictures at www.goldentales.ca/guestlog.htm

The fair grounds are about 10 minutes from my house . . . so an easy jaunt.

Those are just a pleasure to look at. I also love the fowl pics.
The floor in front of the scarecrows looks as if it is covered completely with shavings, do they have the entire barn floors covered like that?

The floor is normally dirt for riding and such . . . . covered in some plywood and shavings for the exhibition. An exhibition hall, not a barn though.

Below, west of Turner Valley, Alberta, in the blue rock area, some picnickers gather to view fall colours.

This Big Horn Sheep in the same area seemed to be enjoying the view as well.

In a forgotten canyon at Chain Lakes, poplars change colour while snow gathers in the shadows
