This was a welcome sight. We don't see grain elevators much anymore, at least in Alberta. They used to be everywhere. Ever town, large and small, had an elevator or five. They stood tall and announced our pride in the land and what it gives us.
They've fallen out of favour over the years. They've been replaced, or outgrown, or are simply no longer needed here.
It is sad.
Iwas so pleased to see this tall guardian of the crops in St. Walburg, Saskatchewan, and for that I am grateful.
This was the first picture I took of the elevator. It's through the truck windshield and not very good, but I added it here for perspective. Grain elevators loom large over the prairie landscape and I wanted my readers to see it for themselves.
