On August 1, 2015, Forgotten Alberta visited the Majorville Medicine Wheel and Cairn, described by author and researcher, Gordon Freeman, as “Canada’s Stonehenge”. Freeman believes the Majorville stones are the remains of a 5000 year old open-air sun temple, used by First Nations people to observe winter and summer solstices. (Source: Atlas Obscura)

The August long weekend has come and gone, and with it, the 2015 Forgotten Alberta Road Trip . Following much debate over appropriate hastags, Greg Farries and I started our three-day excursion in a major way, visiting the Majorville Medicine Wheel, situated in a remote area of Vulcan County.
So many people to thank for this terrific honour. Thanks to @gregfarries , Rose & Ryan at the @PrairiePostAlta , Liza Dawber & Vulcan County, and of course my wife and best friend, Amanda. This couldn’t have happened without your support. #ABheritage #ABforum14 #canadianbadlands #Alberta #history
