It’s 2014, and as I’m feeling the need to publish in something the next two weeks, I’m going to be counting down my top 10 Instagram photos of the year, as “hearted” by my devoted legion of followers (all 17 of them). The selections are a mixture of pictures I’ve posted from previous year’s excursions, and others are from more recent forays into the southeastern Alberta outback. If you wish to follow me on Instagram, please don’t hesitate to stop by my page:

10. Main Street – Hilda, Alberta (2013)

The first of many shots from the 2013 Forgotten Alberta Road Trip. It wasn’t my first trip to Hilda, a tiny hamlet little more than a stone’s throw away from the Saskatchewan border. However, I was surprised to see little had changed since my previous visit eight years earlier; and heartened to see the elevator still standing. The major exception was that the Hilda Hotel no longer seemed to be in business (I may be mistaken about this, please let me know if this isn’t the case). A have posted a few more pics from the visit below:

  1. Hi Jonathan: Love the photos! Lot of them are close to my heart – I grew up near the Medicine Lodge Coulee / Ranchville area by the Cypress Hills. I am not on instagram or twitter, but I do follow your webpage… I am on Facebook and I also manage the Galt Historic Railway Park webpage.

    Would love to talk more! I love photography, and exploring ghost towns / prairies. Feel free to email! Thanks and keep up the good work!
