Plains Bison Grasslands National Park

Safari in Saskatchewan at Grasslands National Park

Finding wildlife in Saskatchewan isn’t particularly hard; however, one will note that cattle and horses often spot the prairie fields and pasture land more often than those more wild. Finding eagles, osprey, bison, moose, bears, and coyotes sometimes takes hours upon hours of driving, and usually quite a bit of luck. For the animal enthusiast, […]

Otter Lake on Churchill River System

Canoeing The Churchill River System in Northern Saskatchewan

Settling back into the prairie life after nearly 5 years of living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I was determined to truly take in life the flatlands of Canada.

Camping on a Cliff at Hole in the Wall Campgrounds – A New Brunswick Experience

Looking out from the edge of a cliff, I watched as the Grand Manan ferry sails over the horizon, off in the distance to my right is the Swallowtail Lightstation, shining light on it’s tiny corner of the Bay of Fundy. My eyes wander down from the horizon to my footing. A jagged 15 meter […]

Stoney Plain Meadow Prince Albert National Park

Horseback Riding in Prince Albert National Park with Sturgeon River Ranch

If you’re from Saskatchewan, chances are there’s a little cowboy running through your blood. Be it the whimsical nature that we seem to have when it comes to long road trips (ie “It’s only an 8 hour drive, easy as pie!), or the general love affair most prairie folk seem to have with country music.

Photo Du Jour: Algonquin Park’s Autumn Reflections

I recently finished a trip throughout the Algonquin Park, a beautiful and historical provincial park that has been named a national historic site. The history in the area is well worth a post on its own, and while I have started it, I am far from finished. I’m still on the road at the moment, […]

Canada-Day-2011-Beers

Happy Canada Day – Lets Get Traditionally Drunk!

Ah yes, it has finally arrived! One of my favourite Canadian holidays. People from coast to coast to coast put down their pens, close their books, shut down their computers, tuck in their roll-e-chairs that cause them lower back pain and say “Its go time baby!”. Canada Day, Dominion Day, La Fetes Du Canada, or […]
