Whitemud Falls,Alta

Whitemud Falls

Whitemud Falls, Alta is about 100 km northeast of Fort McMurray,Alta. just 14 km from the Saskatchewan border. This is the falls we flew to and canoed out in 1983 and 84.

This painting was fairly large and was purchased by the Sudbury Hospital. These falls are on the Clearwater River which runs into the Athabasca River and then on to the Fraser River to the coast.

This was a popular route for fur traders and  this river and falls were mentioned in Simon Frasers’ journals. Image !!…I stood where Simon Fraser stood!!! Wow!!
