BRACK: Here’s why we didn’t publish in recent days
By Elliott Brack | Dear loyal GwinnettForum readers:

You are certainly due an explanation for us not publishing for the last two weeks.

It all started because of a Mystery Photo. On January 31, 2014, Beverly Lougher of Lawrenceville sent us a mystery photo of the Prince of Wales Hotel in Waterton National Park in Canada. This park adjoins Glacier National Park in Montana.

And there on a promontory rising seven stories above two adjoining lakes sits the distinctive Prince of Wales Hotel, a magnificent one-of-a-kind structure. It had intrigued me ever since. So last week, we set out on a 10-day trip out west in Canada.
