Chasing Prairie Skyscrapers across the flatlands of Saskatchewan

The dry,¬†arid¬†winds of Saskatchewan hammer against my left arm. My hand is curved into a wing-like shape as I hang my forearm out the driver’s side window. I entertain myself with the magic of lift. It’s late September and I’m watching the yellow dashed lines extend into the horizon. The highway is empty and the […]
