Just over 12,000 kms, all in Manitoba, and counting for me and the mighty Avenger in the summer of 2013. Here are a dozen pictures of things that turned up along the road.
Metal dome of abandoned Catholic church next to Hwy #10 between Pine River and Sclater built 1921
Front to back: Finnegan, Hawkeye and Rebel on my cousin Vonda’s farm on the edge of Riding Mountain National Park
The mighty Avenger rests beneath mature cottonwoods at Marsh Lake, Spruce Woods Park. I call the colour Carpathian copper; Enterprise calls it brown.
A strange fork made of a ram’s horn and a necktie made of feathers in Carberry Gingerbread House
Grill and fin of a vintage Buick at St. Malo Provincial Park
The biffies behind Ste. Elizabeth Parish Church
It served long and well – tumbledown log house off Hwy #10 near Garland close to Duck Mountain Provincial Park
Wood sculpture of elk in cottage yard at Victoria Beach
Large crucifix with beads and chains next to alien head and votive candles on floor of old bank in Carberry
