One of only two hotels in town. We ate dinner in the cafe adjacent to the casino. The only other options were Subway, a local hamburger place and Taco John's (not recommended by my brother Tom).
We spent part of the morning exploring Many Glacier Valley.
Three valleys (all with lakes) visited: Two Medicine (left), St. Mary's (Center) and Many Glacier (right).
Both of my Grandmothers--Harriet Dudley Emmett and Veara Southworth Fife moved to Canada in their youth. Their parents were called on missions to help settle southern Alberta. The Dudleys settled in Magrath and the Southworths first in Raymond and then Taber.
Charles moved up in 1899 to start work on his section of an irrigation canal. In return his family would get land in Magrath. He was the first person to settle in Magrath. Her build a dugout home in the side of the bank of Pothole Creek.
The family later built a home where the red barn now stands. We stopped in at the city museum to get our bearings. Fortuitously two second cousins and a second cousin once removed were working there. It was a fun min-Dudley reunion as we all explained which of the children we descended from. They gave us great information and directions.
While at the Upper Falls, we got a text from the Mission nurse saying Sarah's tooth extraction (her fourth oral surgery of lingering infection from her wisdom teeth extraction 18 months ago) was successful and looking promising that the infection will soon be gone. alhamdulilah. We took this photo to text back to the nurse to show to Sarah with an expression of our love and best wishes.
