Our ninth stop was Elk Point Alberta. Coming downhill from the North, we could see this giant elevator from a ways out. Elk Point was a lot bigger than I had expected.
In between Andrew and Elk Point, we had driven up to Glendon to see the giant perogy and had a perogy snack at the Perogy Park Cafe. We now know what “Chinese perogies” are. 🙂
Scenic photos of various historic wooden grain elevators found in Alberta that were a part of daily life in early Western Canada. I had travelled to these locations taking photos and experiencing the small towns that they were a part of. Wooden grain elevators were once common across the prairie provinces, but are now rather scarce as they have largely been replaced by large concrete grain terminals. Grain elevators were the heart of their communities and are slowly disappearing due to age, fire and neglect. Some of the grain elevators shown have already burnt down or were demolished.
