Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.

NOTHING…. so beautiful as the big spaces. Steering wheel hand-wavers…salt of the earth folks that are rock of civility. Nothing so beautiful as the empty…in prairie thunderstorm’s electrified sky….in the dance of sun-kissed canola in a breeze. Things resilient in the tug of war with life made complex in a hectic society. In oil and gas, agriculture, and land-based recreation activity that feels free, lies the ingredients for life authentically lived. We are rooted in land and people…seeking simplicity amidst the complexity of life. Flagstaff – full of classics.
