The Abandoned

IMG_8541All throughout Canadas highways you will see abandoned buildings and I often wonder, what happened? Luckily if you are traveling you can search “Ghost Towns” in Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. (as far as I know) and wikipedia will come up with a list of places you can see.  Scroll past all of the listed towns to the “see also” menu and you can choose to map all coordinates using Google.  It is a neat tool because it is really important to read the information about the site before you go there!  There is nothing worse than expecting a cool building, only to find that place was burnt down years ago.  Just note that most of the buildings are dangerous and sometimes off limits to the public so be careful while exploring.  One of my favourite places to visit in Saskatchewan is the disbanded radar dome which was completed during the cold war in 1963 to monitor Soviet activity in North American airspace.  Located on highway 7.
