Life In The Past Lane
Photograph - Photograph
The Circle W Ranch is located about an hour northwest of Kamloops, BC. A large, stately, white ranch house with a wrap-around veranda stands inside the gate. One day as I was driving by I decided to stop in. Missy, the owner of the Circle W Ranch, came out to greet me. She told me proudly that her beautiful home was originally built far away in Walachin, BC, a small English settlement dating back to 1909. When the owner of the house, Mr. Wilson, purchased the Circle W Ranch property, he dismantled his ranch house and moved it plank by plank by horse drawn wagon over miles of desert, hills and valleys to its current resting place. As I chatted with Missy I spied this old Chevrolet relic nearby and asked if I could photograph it. Missy beamed and said I certainly could. "And you have yourself a nice day and come back for tea anytime you are out this way," she said. Now that's country hospitality! The Fine Art logo will not appear on image.
