place. Placid rill-forming community on the edge of the Athabasca river in nothern Alberta. Chosen as a settlement site by the Hudson Bay Company in 1987 because of the ease with which sandstone boulders could be wrestled from the banks to anchor white-fish nets.

Home of the Weasel Scars lacrosse team, three-time NLL champs, and headquarters of the Canadian Portage Company.

Windshield-repair shops and piles of loose gravel crowd the edges of Klein Street, a dinosaur tomb attracts tourism dollars, and french lessons are available from the nubile lasses in the winter months.

I think that was just the rill as we went through Athabasca.
