Inunnguaq: rocks piled in the shape of human formsSmall mock inuksuit are built by travellers and displayed on the rocky edges beside Hwy 17 in Eastern Ontario, particularly west of North Bay. Those in the shape of human forms are “inunnguaq”, historically built by the Inuit to help herd cariboo. I built one of my own too, but it’s not as easy as it looks! Next, Lichen amass on shoreline rocks along Lake Superior, Ontario, the largest freshwater lake in the world.

The first electric curling irons, Rowley, Alberta MuseumTheme displays with antiques and creepy maniquins, Rowley, Alberta Museum. I almost feel bad about laughing because the people who have created these displays are quite serious about bringing the town back to life, and they hope to put it on the map as a tourist destination. The amateurishly displayed decor is part of the ambiance and curious charm of the place. Rowley is now a ghost town, and was a shoot site for the films “Legends of the Fall” and “The Magic of Ordinary Days” in addition to “Bye Bye Blues”

Rowley, Alberta (Canada)Fields of flax at Rowley, Alberta  – across the Canadian prairies, the iconic grain elevators seen in the background here are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Built almost entirely of wood, some have burnt to the ground and many have simply rotted to be replaced by modern metal silos. Rowley Alberta is now a ghost town whose claim to fame is having been a site for the Movie “Bye Bye Blues”. Locals are rebuilding and rejuvenating a few of the original buildings in order to attract tourists.
