July Outing to the Avonlea Badlands

Badlands Outing 1_reduced copyOn July 7th members of the Moose Jaw Camera Club ventured out for a sunset shoot of the Avonlea Badlands. Club member Cathy Geisler spends a good part of the summer working with the Avonlea Heritage Museum.

This year the museum is organizing more guided tours around the local area. Cathy contacted the club and shared the tour schedule. July 7th was a great day to venture out. The rain gods had played hide and seek all day in the Moose Jaw area but by the time we arrived in Avonlea  for the tour with Cathy the weather was cooperating and the sun was shining brightly.
