The Fort: Northwest Mounted Police Museum, Macleod, AB
We camped last night at the Daisy May Campground at Macleod, AB where Syd and Pat from Raymond, AB and their playful pup Emma showed true western friendliness and hospitality. This morning we revisited the RNWMP cemetery where Rupert's grandfather's cousin, Constable George Ernest Willmett, is buried to take photos. Ru is writing a book about the 1908 murder of Const. Willmett in Frank, AB and is avidly conducting field research. Next stop was The Fort: North West Mounted Police Museum where mounties clad in historical uniforms perform musical rides.
Now on our way to Vulcan, AB we have stopped for a delicious lunch at Aunt Alma's Country Kitchen and to use the library's computers in Nanton, AB.
