 Castle Mountain's Huckleberry Festival was a huge success this year, with one very small cloud in the sky, soaring +30 temperatures, over 1000 huckleberry hunters, plenty of hucklberries (and wild strawberries), live entertainment all day, BBQ, and the natural beauty of Castle Mountain all around.

  1. Premier Redford flew into the Pincher Creek Municipal Airport and was brought to the rotary breakfast at the Provincial Building in a timely manner. Something like the medevac patients being brought to the state of the art medical facilities in a timely manner via the Edmonton City Centre Airport. Everyone enjoys timely access even Alberta's Premier.

  2. Great shots of the surrounding countryside and it was great to be able to participate in the events around town during the Diamond Parade and Rodeo as well. Had a wonderful time being part of the southern Alberta atmosphere again. Sincerely Rob
