|Site Name: Ennis’s Trailer Window
At 1st Avenue and 6th Street, face the Beiseker Village
Office (a former Canadian Pacific Railway station), turn
south (left) on 1st Avenue and go 0.8 km. Turn right at
the “Dump Gate” sign and go 0.3 km. The site is
on the right, enclosed by a white wooden fence.
Viewing the image framed by the trailer window (often
through tears), one wonders if the field and sky, with
their assuring hues of green, yellow (a field of canola),
and blue, are the real thing. Standing at the actual
location, they seem to be. Never mind that it is next to
a dump. It is the serene image that forms a fitting
apostrophe to Jack and Ennis’s love, which will
endure for as long as the Brokeback story is told.
