Bar U Ranch National Historical Site, Alberta, Canada
"Bar U Ranch", National Historic Site. Established in 1882, it was huge ranching operation "even more info here.".
if you know anything about me, you will know I have always wanted to live on a farm, own a farm, have horses, cows, dogs, cats, garden, fields, quiet & peace the whole 9 or is it 10 yards. I want a mountain view like in the movie "Legend of the Fall".
so when we got the chance to visit this location I really enjoyed seeing how the ranchers came in a took over the whole ranching/cattle business. it was hard work, long hours but if you had the right team you would do just fine. the shot over the campfire is a pot of coffee & hot water. the lady, let me see, i think her name was Greta, that could so be wrong but it is what is popping in my head this moment. she was great at telling the story. these men would all do different jobs. the chef would run with all his team ahead of the folks to set up and get to cooking. coffee was a real treat ...so the hubby loved the coffee. for me it was so darn strong. like my Dad always says "it will put hair on your chest" & that ain't no lie. it was STRONG!!!
