Big Val­ley’s tourist sea­son be­gan right on time this past Satur­day with the ar­rival of the first Al­berta Prairie train of the sea­son at 4:00 p.m. Lo­cal vol­un­teers in pe­riod cos­tume lined up at the sta­tion to wel­come our vis­i­tors. Though it was a bit chilly, the sun shone down on our guests as they strolled through the vil­lage snap­ping pho­tos and check­ing out the sights be­fore en­joy­ing a great meal. Af­ter the long win­ter hi­ber­na­tion, it was fun to watch the whole vil­lage re­sus­ci­tate, but be­fore we knew it, that fa­mil­iar whis­tle called an end to the visit. We’re all look­ing for­ward to the next visit.
