We recently took a weekend camping trip to Tolman Bridge East (near Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park) in the Alberta Badlands. The campground is relatively quiet, located on on the banks of the Red Deer River – there is a gun range that operates to the west, but it’s not crazy distracting.
Sunset and Birdsong
The days were hot, bright, and clear. In the late afternoon you could see storm clouds on the horizon. We were lucky enough to have the storms skirt around the campground both nights we were there.

Clouds + Sunset = Epicness
After the Storm
We took a quick trip out to the ghost town of Rowley (just a bit to the south of the campground). I had visited a couple times prior, but only saw the outsides of the buildings. This time around we were greeted by one of the locals, and they offered to take us around for a tour inside the buildings.

Sam’s Saloon hosts a pizza night on the last Saturday of the month. The event has gotten bigger over the years and they now close off the street to seat more people.
