Today we delivered my 11-year old son to a Wilderness Mountain Camp out West.  This is his first time at camp without brother and while he does have a couple of his cousins with him, it will be a change for him without little brother tagging along.  On the way, we spotted some pretty nice country and on the way back we took a bit of a different route and found ourselves in some very scenic country.

The first image is of an old coal mining works that was still being worked today.  They were cleaning up a small amount of coal and loading it onto trucks instead of the train that was parked in the foreground.

The other image is of the Oldman Dam that was running wide open a couple of weeks back in order to help prevent some flooding of smaller towns up river.  Today it was silent – and dry.
