This last week I went the farthest north I have ever been in Canada, at about 56 degrees north to place called Island Falls in Saskatchewan. Up there a lot of ice still clung to the lakes, it snowed even in the middle of may… It boggles my mind how big Canada is, I was at 56 degrees but Canada extends North to 82 degrees. So much wilderness, so much space and all I know is I want to see a hell of a lot more of it and I can’t wait.
This past week was quite the adventure. I was sent out on my first work trip all the way out to Alberta. A little place that seemed to be so many miles from anywhere (It was in fact about 4 hours east of Calgary). It was fantastic and I could not have asked for better weather. These are just a few of the pictures I took while traveling and walking around. People say the prairies are boring to drive though not if you love birds like I do, or if you happen to drive through the Red Deer River Valley!
