Road Trip to See the Ghosts, Spring 2010, Vol 3: Crichton and the Buffalo

Text and photos (c) Robert Barry Francos, 2010

This April, fellow photographer John Penner and I went on a two-day road trip through southwestern Saskatchewan in search of ghost towns.

Many of the houses were left wide open and ranged from either ransacked at some point, or actually relatively intact.

Here is the third part a photo journal of the trip, with descriptions. The images can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Chrichton, Saskatchewan,_Saskatchewan

Marker for a town long gone.

The plaque on the marker is all that tells the visitor that the town was there.

Railroad tracks cross the road that leads to where the town once stood.

Grassy hills evocate the lonely plain that once was lively.

A garage stands abandoned.

An old tractor still resides in the garage bay.

An interesting pattern to the side of the garage facade.
