The Abandoned Cemetery of Wayne, Alberta

Once again we found ourselves creeping up on the last Saturday of the month and that means it was time to get ourselves back out to Rowley for the monthly pizza night.

Before Saturday evening rolled around we had some time to kill. We decided to head off to the ghost town of Wayne, once a thriving coal-mining community of nearly 2500 souls, today it’s population is less than 50.

Our primary objective was to locate and visit the abandoned cemetery that belonged to the town. Our secondary objective was to stop in at the Last Chance Saloon at the Rosedeer Hotel, now in its 106th year of operation.

After all that adventuring, it’s back to Rowley for some pizza and beer and then it was time to put the drone up in the air and capture some aerial shots of the three elevators in town. That’s one busy day you are invited to come along with us.
