Buffalo Jump
Along the Trans-Canada Highway, 40 kilometres east of Strathmore in southeast Alberta, an old Canadian Pacific Railway train station sits forlornly on prairie grass. The boarded up building, last used in the 1970s, is at a little used intersection, known only to visitors as Buffalo Jump, after an abandoned arts and crafts store meters away. The dusty train stop also had the company of a garage and service station, which now too sits with the prairie ghosts in the hot summer sun, derelict and long-forgotten.
