Back To My Roots

We were recently in Alberta for one of my friends from university’s wedding and then we decided to keep driving East to head into Saskatchewan, Maple Creek to be exact. Maple Creek was our destination because that is where my dad is from. His mom and dad and their 7 children including my dad, moved from their farm in Maple Creek, SK to our current ranch in Merritt, BC in 1962. I was really close to my grandpa and was really excited to find the old homestead where my grandpa grew up and my dad was born. The old house that my dad was born in was still standing, some of the old buildings were still standing and there was still some equipment around as well. Here are some of the pictures I took from my family’s old homestead.
