Rural landscapes: Hope in a barren landscape
WINTER AT FORT CHIPEWYAN, ALBERTA
This hamlet of 800 in the province’s far north is only road-accessible in winter (thanks to an ice road). The rest of the year, people can only get in and out on a plane. So it’s deeply isolated. But it’s also on the shore of Lake Athabasca, making for many beautiful landscapes.
This cross went with a Roman Catholic Church that burned to the ground in early 2022. For me, it’s a vital reminder that no matter how bleak life can be, we need never face it alone. (Learn more about that here: https://frankscottage.blog/)
