Girouxville / Fahler

The Fahler Bee is an Alberta Icon, but near Fahler is the true centre of Peace Country beefarming, Girouxville.  Chez Paradis is one of the leading area Apairists in this largely French Canadian community.  I worked for them for a few days just after leaving high school when I had a dream of homesteading in the Peace Country and raising bees.  A couple of hundred stings later I changed my mind and headed to Fort Walsh, Saskatchewan to help excavate the site of  Cypress Hills Massacre.
