Exploring a Small Corner of Northern Alberta

Strange, isn’t it, that you can live somewhere for a long time and never get to know all of it? Upon returning to the Peace River country last week to where I was born and raised, I discovered some history new to me and spent some time revisiting familiar places in a region that still feels like home.

Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

I’m going home the old way with a light hand on the reins making the long approach.

Going to the woods is going home, for I suppose we came from the woods originally.

This beautiful little lake, George Lake, is located south of Hines Creek on Highway 64. There are serviced camping stalls here, a boat launch, and picnic areas. During the late summer, a music festival is hosted here on its shores.

The end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started.
