Orthodox Church at Elm Springs

Alex Emond, from southern Saskatchewan: "I found this church by stopping on a hilltop and 'glassing' the surrounding country . It was way off glinting in the sun . Romanian Orthodox , as opposed to Russian or Greek . There was once a bit of a town there but now only the church and a small cemetery . The place is looked after and it seems like it still gets used , maybe not regularly but on occasion . Very quiet . I have been there a few times and have yet to see a soul , a vehicle , but once had some antelope out run my car . They left me like I was standing still and I was going as fast as this dirt road would allow."
