Directions to Sunchild Mission via the O'Chiese Road

We highly recommending printing this entire page and taking it with you. When you hit the print command it will automatically print each photo with text on a separate page. At least on our computer it does!


Reference picture above...The starting point for our directions will be the 3rd traffic light on highway 11 in Rocky Mt. House coming from Red Deer. Please set your odometer to "0" right at this traffic light. We notice the mileages differ from one vehicle to another, so on the longer stretches your odometer will probably show slightly different numbers, but it will be close enough to identify the intersections. Our contact phone numbers, should you need to call us are: house # 403-989-3715, Rodger's cell #403-846-5648, Karen's cell #403-895-0037.


 

 

 

 

Rocky Intersection

Reference Picture above...This is a closer image of the 3rd traffic light where you will begin with your mileage at "0". Go straight through this intersection and stay on Highway 11. Your 1st turn off will be in 9.1 Kilometers from this point.


 

 

 

 

Intersection756

Reference picture above...Turn "Right" at this junction of 756. Notice the green signs pointing to Sunchild & O'Chiese. This intersection is 9.1 kilometers from the start point at the 3rd traffic light in Rocky. You will also notice that if your odometer shows something different than 9.1 when you make this turn, then you can calculate how much difference to add or subtract to the following mileage numbers.


 

 

 

 

O'Chiese turnoff

Reference picture above...This intersection is 33.7 kilometers from the start point in Rocky, or 24.6 kilometers from the turn off on 756 at highway 11. It is also here that the pavement ends. Turn "left" at this intersection and notice the cattle gate after you make the turn. The next picture shows a close up of the intersection.


 

 

 

 

Cattle Gate

Reference picture above...This is a close up of the intersection where the road turns from pavement to Gravel. You will turn "left" at this intersection. I repeat, it is 33.7 kilometers from the start point in Rocky, or 24.6 Kilometers from the last turn off at Hwy 11. The next landmark will be in 17.5 kilometers.


 

 

 

 

Blue Bridge

Reference picture above...This bridge is the border of the O'Chiese Reserve. Go straight through here...no turns at this point. This bridge is 51.2 kilometers from the start point in Rocky, or 17.5 k from the last turn at the cattle gate where the pavement ended. The next turn will be in 3.9 kilometers.


 

 

 

 

Reserve Intersection near O'Chiese School.

Reference picture above...This is the intersection where you will turn "left". It is 3.9 kilometers from the Blue Bridge or 55.1 from the start point in Rocky. The big red communications tower doesn't show up well in this picture, but it does show up well when you are there and would be hard to miss. Expect the next turn in 3.6 kilometers.


 

 

 

 

Sunchild School sign

Reference picture above...This sign is 3.6 Kilometers from the last turn by the red radio tower or 58.7 k from the start point in Rocky and just 1 kilometer from the mission. You will turn "right" here.


 

 

 

 

Sign

Reference picture above...This is just a close up of the sign in the last picture. You are now just 1 kilometer from the mission.


 

 

 

 

curve

Reference picture above...After you turn at the green sign in the last picture drive straight ahead for 200 meters (0.2 kilometers) and you will see part of the road going straight ahead and the main road curves off to the left. Be sure to follow the curve around to the left.


 

 

 

 

driveway

Reference picture above...As you swing around the curve in the the last picture start looking for our driveway off to the right just 100 meters (0.1k) ahead.


 

 

 

 

driveway

Reference picture above...This is where you turn right onto our driveway. It is three hundred meters (0.3kilometers) from the green school sign at the last intersection and exactly 700 meters (0.7K) to the mission. There will be numerous driveways turning off from this road, but just stay on this road as it makes several turns to the right and goes almost in a circle.


 

 

 

 

Mission

Reference picture above...This is the end of the road and you have arrived at the mission!
