I have seen this a few times - beautifully done video. I love Alberta, born in Drumheller (dinosaur country) but raised in the wheat field area, firstly the lousy yield land Oyen/Alsask area but then mostly grew up in Three Hills, the "wheat belt". Wind sweeping across an unripened wheat field is a thing of beauty!
The video is so mountain area oriented, absolutely fabulous but I recall driving 80 miles west from Calgary to hit those mountains on the way to Banff near the BC border.
I have lived the past 30 years at the ocean in close proximity of the mountains of British Columbia which probably cover 70% of BC.
When I return to the Alberta I miss, I don't go to see the mountains but my heart goes giddyup when I hit the open spaces which begin about 80 miles out of BC and see the ranches, the farms with the big red barns and granaries, the flowing wheat fields - I do miss Alberta.

There is always room for guests and an R at our little ranch (we are actually in the city) We call it the BlueStreak room(for now).

RRR there are talks in the works for a possible Calgary/Banff run in the future. More to come on that !!!

I grew up in a grain farming family.
One of my great life memories was (age 16) working for my 2 Uncles on their 6 section farm in Delia - building 5 quonset granaries over 10 ft I/G conical shaped cement to enable getting all the grain out w/o shovelling like hell. I'm not sure if anyone else has ever done that.
Being a big operation they were one of the last to get the crop off and some neighbours pitched in as they had finished their harvest. Great site to see 5 combines running - I was driving truck and we would unload "on the fly" and got so good we did not stop for corners - way too much fun. No easy feat with a rear steering combine, at least without dumping a couple bushels of grain on the ground.
I had worked all summer for them 16-18 hrs per day $90/mo 7 days/wk (I should resent that but I don't) - one weekend we had a break where we went to the Calgary Stampede, but I had to drive my 11 yr old niece back on Saturday night so wasn't exactly a lot of time off.
Both of my Uncle's have passed but in the 90's I volunteered to come out and work my ass off at harvest a couple of times, just for the sheer fun of it!

Aside on my "11 yr old" niece. She is now about 55 and had a breast cancer opertion yesterday - both her mom and dad (2 of my very favourite people) died in their 50's from cancer so I pray Carol has a better fate.

Rob,

I just put some SSR parts in the mail to you, after seeing the video, I should have gone myself.

I saw, horses, ski's, boats, dog sled, bikes, snowshoes and one brief car.

Is that the only car there?

And what is all that white "stuff" on the ground?? Don't like the looks of that.

That's a great story Cash!! It's kind of funny, I was born in Winterpeg, then moved to BC where I grew up(got taller) on a ranch with tons of grrrranimals, then we moved to Alberta when I was 14 to way south Alberta lots of fields of grain like you speak of, that is a site to see for sure, all the wheat flowing in a breeze, plus the weather is usually really nice and warm !!!
I hope all works out well for your niece !!!
One thing about farmers ...... They work too bloody hard in the fall !!!

After delivering the Calgary Herald for 4 years thru the winter and then having to shovel that white $#it while growing up (taller as Rob says) in AB, I'll take the heat and humidity of the south now. Do like to visit, can't wait for the Calgary-Banff-Jasper rally that Rob's putting together after this teaser.
