Rizzo fell in a well...

... but I rescued her. We were exploring the very cool 'former' town of Alderson, which is just a number of foundations and piles of old artifacts strewn about. The history of the town is interesting in its own right, but we'dve never heard about it if we hadn't been chasing a geocache.

Well, as we were hiking through the tall grass, Rizzo the pug dog finds herself on the edge of a deep hole and since she can't stop in time, she valiantly tries to leap over, only missing the far edge enough that she kind of dangled vertically for a monent. It was enough time for me to decide not to dive for her as there was a layer of snow about 4' down that I hoped would hold her. It did. I was able to lay down and reach down far enough to scoop her out.

We had a really nice drive down here. We found 3 out of 4 geocache attempts and took 6.5 hours for a 3.5 hour trip. We are all feeling fresh and ready to take on the trails and snow tomorrow.

Yeah, that's right! Snow! There wasn't any for the entire trip but about a km from the cabins all of a sudden there is PILES!

Tomorrow I think we will tour the Cypress Hills Winery and Fort Walsh. We have been coming here for 12 years and have never visited the fort.

We went so slow we ended up leapfrogging this same freight train 4 times. Got some really cool shots. I stole this one from the little screen on the back of my DSLR camera.

  1. I am happy that Rizzo is okay. I have a pug too. They think they are big dogs. I also have a Boxer and a Australian Cattle Dog. Bob, our pug, thinks he is their boss.
