Uranium City Now

This is a page devoted to images and stories devoted to Uranium City and area today. Although, this site largely focuses on Uranium City’s storied (and tragic) history, it’s worth remembering that Uranium City, and the Athabasca region generally, remains a living community – as well as being one of the most beautiful regions of the planet. Hopefully, the images and stories recorded here will encourage people to explore further, and perhaps even visit. Thanks to all the talented photographers living in Uranium City who took these photos.

Just a deadly morning until the storm clouds come . . . we pulled our net, cleaned the fish by the time we got to Bushell we could hear the thunder going by.

All worth it, community happy for the fish

I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
