Travel Directions:
From Hwy 1 (Trans-Canada Hwy), take Hwy 21 north to Township Road 263. Turn right (east) on 263. Rockyford is at the intersection of 263 and Range Road 233. The Riverton Post Office building is on Main Street at 1st Avenue. See:

It was here, on simple postcards, that Ennis wrote “You bet” and later read the word “DECEASED.” Though the neighboring brick structure has been demolished, the Riverton Post Office stands and reminds us of the power small words have to change lives.

Look over your shoulder and see JT’s Bar, and to the left of it the exterior of the Childress Dance Hall. And by all means don’t leave town without seeing the Electra and Childress Rodeo Grounds. They are two blocks away.
