Alberta Ghost Town Tour: Day One

Each year since 2014, we get together with a group of friends and tour around the small towns and abandoned places in an area of Alberta for a weekend.  This year our tour took us back to the area surrounding Drumheller and the Alberta badlands.

In previous years I would always consider this a photography trip, but my focus this year was less on the photos and more on video.  Whether it’s a symptom of owning a drone or simply the desire to branch out into a new medium, I find myself becoming more interested in telling the story of the places we visit using video versus photos.  Is it a phase or a new direction for  I guess there’s only one way to find out.

So, I invite you to take a few minutes and join me on a video tour of our first day of the Alberta Ghost Town Tour, 2018 Edition.

      Hi Monty.

      That sounds like a great way to spend a birthday. Unfortunately we won’t be seeing another gathering until next year. If you’re interested, I can send you a list of some cool places that you might want to check out that are fairly close to Airdrie. Feel free to drop me an email at
