4. Tide Lake roadster (2013)


Every now and then you find something out on the prairie that makes you think. This was one of them, an old abandoned roadster, miles from anything really, the engine and most of the interior removed, the remnants rusting away in the prairie sun. Naturally, or unnaturally, one’s mind tends to wander through all the morbid possibilities a scene like this presents. However, a more likely explanation for the Tide Lake roadster likely involves teenagers, an old beater, possibly some booze and too much time to kill. Or, maybe this just seemed like a good place to dump a car?

The photo below from the same day also makes you think, a creepy old shack out stuck on the prairie at Kinivie, southeast of Tilley. Perspective is everything of course, and what you can’t see are the corrals for the community pasture adjacent, which adds a little more context and removes most of the mystery from the scene.
