Hi Mark, You are entirely welcome... I appreciate your comment that it could be 1949, that was kind of how I felt when I took it. I was just going out, and saw my husband just coming home... we don't use the '49 often, so it was just one of those rare opportunities to catch it in action.

You asked where in AB we are, this is it, just a few miles north of a little village called Hines Creek, about an hour and a half north of Grande Prairie. If you look at the map, the photo with the pink trees is located right overtop of our acreage! Panoramio has encouraged me to show off what I percieve as the beauty of the Peace Country to the world.

Thanks for enjoying the photos!
