Winnipeg, Manitoba – Indian Head, Saskatchewan
Day 7 (end of wk one): 5 hours (took us 6.5hrs) – 504 kilometres – $30
G’mornin’! So before we left Manitoba, we went to Fort Whyte Alive. Which is an incredible family friendly, perfect all year round place to experience and explore! Bison, Prairie dogs, trails, and so much more including day camps for kids and activities in the winter!
After a beautiful morning walking around and seeing what there was to see we headed west on the number one. We pulled off to a sweet little town called Austin. It was primitive, clean and quite ghost town like. This was one of the most delightful buildings there!
We continued on until we reached Indian Head, Saskatchewan which was LONGG. V. Long. Extremely dull, it’s beautiful landscapes but the drive became quite monotonous compared to the treelined, hilly landscapes of the east. We reached Indian Head and stayed with the most beautiful people! The conversation was fruitful and their hospitality was ever so kind. They were long time friends of my mom’s and the most interesting and joyous couple I’ve met. So thank you Sandra and Bill for your love and insightful knowledge.
Off We Go: Cochrane, Alberta
