Great merriment was enjoyed by all. The next morning welcomed bright blue skies and, unheardof for January, -1C temps! So off I went to join the New Year's Resolution joggers and New Year's Bird Count spotters. I always pause on the Duggan Bridge here, above the remnants of Old Fort Road. 150 years ago, just to the left of that green bridge, was the main cable ferry crossing from this side to the Hudson's Bay trading post on the other bank. Back in 1870 a group of Blackfeet Indians from the far south were on there way home after a successful trading mission at the Fort. Another group of Cree, their traditional enemies, lay in wait in the trees on either side of the path just beneath my feet. The trap was sprung and seven Blackfeet were killed. In retaliation, several months later they returned in strength and laid seige to the Fort. The settlers were called into the stockade and the lone rusty canon was wheeled forward while flaming arrows shot across the river all night - always falling a bit short. A trusted priest was called in to parle and persuaded the Blackfeet to accept some compensation and return home. Considering these remarkable events, it's worth a short pause don't you think? Ah, but a New Year brings new plans. This watch is already set for Geneva time .
Great story, Dean! Thanks for sharing...
