Tried to make a run out to Cadomin, Alberta on September 3, 2016. It was not a success. Ran into rain, then rain mixed with snow. It was raining enough that it was a loss as an exploration trip. The gravel roads in the area were starting to get slick. Sometimes you have to know when to scrap a trip.
Cadomin is a nice little spot with a permanent population with a coal mine nearby. The goal was to get a few miles south of Cadomin to a coal mining ghost town called Mountain Park. That did not happen. Cadomin was a far as I got.
General store in Cadomin. Inside is a small cafe and liquor store.
I love running across stuff like this.
This is an out of the way place however people from all over manage to find it. There is a small table with six chairs with names on them. Some of the locals must get together on a regular basis and have their spots permanently reserved.
Since I did not get anything noteworthy from this trip I thought I would buy something from the store. The wine was priced right and it went well with the barbequed rib eye steak that evening. Some trips do have happy endings.
