Ghosts on the Red Coat Trail

The Red Coat Trail runs along the southern portions of three provinces in Canada: Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. This route is the same route taken by the North West Mounted Police in 1874 as they tried to bring law and order to the Canadian West.  One of my personal projects is to photograph the vanishing relics of rural life along the Red Coat Trail.  A few years ago, I photographed along the Red Coat Trail in Saskatchewan. On my recent trip to Alberta, I headed out on the Red Coat Trail south of Taber and headed east to Foremost. I was able to capture these images to add my series.

    As a photographer passionate by prairie landscapes, ghost towns and abandoned vehicles, I must say your work is truly amazing ! That’s really beautiful work. Red Coat Trail is on my “to visit list”. It’s not easy to find informations about this place so I was wondering if it’s easy to find hotels along this Ghost Town trail or if the rent of a RV is necessary ?
