One week with #exploresask


For the past week, I explored southern Saskatchewan and it's many landscapes during an epic camping trip. I discovered three wildly different regions: prairies, badlands, and forest.

Grasslands National Park

Grasslands National Park is divided in two. In the East Block, its main attraction is Badlands and hoodoos. In the West Block, it's about wide open spaces and wildlife. Both sides are known as the darkest dark-sky preserve in Canada.

The Prairies

Once upon a time, a Saskatchewan provincial slogan read: "hard to spell, easy to draw". Saskatchewan is a perfect rectangle and it's best know for its green and gold prairie fields.

Cypress Hills Provincial Park

It's a Nunatak! As one of the few regions of Canada never covered by glacier ice, Cypress Hills is an entirely different landscape compared to its neighbours.

In eight days, I covered 2500 km while exploring Saskatchewan! It was quite the road trip and it left me with a new appreciation for my neighbour of province!
