Twin River Reserve, Southern Alberta
Wide open prairie interrupted by barbed wire, we walked among herds of cattle and pronghorn antelope. Down to the shrinking Milk River to sit on its bank and talk about emptiness while the cows all stared at us. So far south that our phones thought we were in Montana.

I was just along for the walk while the guys were bird hunting. One of the last hot summery days of the year. The quiet weight of sky over fields. There were no partridge that day.
