Shown at Fort Walsh, the North West Mounted Police outpost, in 1881, Jack Clark holds an 1873 Winchester and wears prairie attire that is in keeping with the Rocky Mountain Ranger uniform. The force often took on former policemen as civilian scouts, since many of them were intermarried with natives or Métis and thus offered valuable experience, especially during the years of Sitting Bull’s Sioux exile in the Cypress Hills. – Courtesy Provincial Archives of Alberta A.19402 –

CA: near San Diego. Anza Borrego is one of those hikes that you never realized you had right in California. The slot canyon is a beautiful natural formation nestled in the heart of the Anza Borrego State Park, about an hour and a half East of San Diego. The park has no fees to enter, thousands of miles to explore and off-road on. It even has unique areas such as the palm tree oasis of Hellhole Canyon, abandoned mines and of course the slot canyon itself.
