I'm very excited to announce that the 2014 calendar featuring the photography from my Around the Hat series is now available! This completely original 8.5x11" full colour Medicine Hat, Alberta calendar was made possible through sponsorship from local realtor, Matt Teel. I provided all of the images, and Matt worked with the printer to produce this amazing calendar. I'm really impressed with the outcome!
I have a limited stock available, but I will be giving these calendars away for FREE with each purchase made in my Around the Hat postcard shop. Nothing in my shop is over $10, so it's a pretty sweet deal for a set of original postcards and a 2014 calendar. Or, think of it as spending $10 on a 2014 calendar and getting a free set of postcards - either way it's a bonus.
Order now before they're gone! I'll be shipping daily up until Christmas.
Just want a calendar without the postcards? Order here.

This 100 year old postcard is the latest addition to my growing collection of Medicine Hat memorabilia. Featuring the original Alexandra School, this postcard was mailed on April 19, 1913 to De Soto, Missouri.
I love the message on this one as it makes me curious about the scene and his job. Medicine Hat was booming, and this guy sent this message home: "Haven't heard from you in some time. Am going to work for C.P.R. Line at noon. How is mother? Love to all." Short and sweet - a vintage text message.

Our impromptu hike up to the top of Multnomah Falls initially felt like a fools errand. We weren't even sure what we were heading to see at first, but we continued to follow the trail up to the point that we'd gone to far to simply turn back. It was a steep climb, but the views became even more stunning as we watched the sunset through the trees. As luck would have it, we reached the top of the falls just as the sun began to crest. It was a long walk up, but the views proved to be worth it.
