I noticed they had a dump station and took advantage of this to empty the tanks and fill the fresh water tank. The old town is down in what they call Alberta’s Badlands. Now here in Alberta “Badlands” means that there are hills and the land is not level. We drove around and looked at the parks, but it was now in the 90’s. We headed east on PH 1.
