Wordless Wednesday- October 10, 2010

Just one, of the huge tires on the 797 trucks, which transport the sands, at the oil  sands, outside of Fort MacMurray, Alberta. A portion of the underside of the truck can be seen above the tire.

Big and small at the Oil Sands Discovery Center.


  1. Wow! Having the "regular" tire in front of this one certainly gives a great perspective. Nice photo.

    1. Thanks and the truck cab towers two stories over that!

    1. Yes, they are very big and very expensive and apparently have about a 6 months expected life to them, before they are replaced with a new set.
