Back in September, I travelled to Nanton which is about an hour outside Calgary. This is a small, friendly town known for a wide selection of antiques, an air space museum, and other knick knacks.
The antiques made me think of my uncle Walter, since he always collected them and took me to antique stores whenever he visited. I texted him telling him where I was, and he replied saying he looked forward to my next visit to his house in North Carolina. Little did I know, this is the last thing he would ever say to me. He passed away 4 days later.
Enjoy these photos of Nanton which I believe demonstrate the quintessential beauty of rural Alberta.
