11 Bridges to Wayne

After the Museum Neil asked if I had anything else to do in town, well I did not really got a few groceries and since we ate at the museum we were not hungry and so he suggested we go out to the saloon in Wayne.  I haven't been there for a couple years and we were always gonna ride there but that never happened so we did.  but I made him go through Rosedale so we could take the 11 bridges way.

I never got all the bridges but it crosses a creek going down to the Red Deer River and it is so curvy there needs to be 11 bridges in like 6 miles(I'm guessing) to get there.  There used to be a coal mine up there so they needed to get there easily.

All that is left is a hotel and the saloon.  I guess at one point there was a golf course on the top of the one hill but it is long grown over now.  Lots of history in the saloon on the walls, even a paper to tell all about it.  And I guess a ghost in the third floor of the hotel but I have never seen her :(

Then afterwards we headed home the long way through the windmills at Dalum and down the Dorothy bridge way.
