Kimberly Johnston, 13, came to the E.C. Bar Ranch near High Prairie with friends from Slave Lake on July 14 to try the new water slide that was installed this spring. Johnston was a little more apprehensive than her friends, but decided to take the plunge. Johnston came to the ranch with the Rob Irwin family, who enjoys all E.C. Bar Ranch has to offer. The slide is 230 feet long with an approximate drop of 35-40 feet to a waiting pool of cool water. E.C. Bar Ranch is open from 1-8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday or by appointment by calling Lyndon or Denise Drefs at 780-523-1405.
