Driving from Brooks to Drumheller is a trip through the old west. Towns that once thrived are now practically ghost towns. Coal mines which provided many jobs are now shut down. Wayne is off the beaten path, across nine single lane bridges (there are two more past this saloon) along a winding road. The Last Chance Saloon is full of an eclectic collection: bottles, photographs, animal heads, antlers, tobacco tins and all kinds of memorabilia. Beer is served in canning jars.
Another village, Dorothy has only a few houses an abandonned grain elevator and what looked like two out of use churches. Perhaps one or both are still in use, but they look quite lonely in the Badlands landscape.
One place everyone stops is at the hoodoos. Their odd shapes are other-worldly. Carved out of the sandstone, they are slowly eroding.
