On Tuesday morning, L and I rented a car and drove to Lethbridge, where my Dad lives. I was shocked to learn that his house, which he had built and lived in for 55 years before selling it last year, had been torn down. We went and looked at the hole in the ground where the house had stood, feeling an odd mix of emotions. The new owner is planning to build a large home on the property.

After a good visit with my Dad, we headed for Medicine Hat. On the way, we took a detour south from Seven Persons to explore Red Rock Coulee. This is an area about a mile long covered with red balls of various sizes and in various states of decay. A rather unearthly landscape.
