There are scenic routes and there are routes that will get you there faster. We opted for the scenic route. We have now left the Canadian Shield with its massive rock outcrops and I just have to ask - how do those trees grow out of those rocks. Amazing. We are now travelling the prairies.
Great bald eagles, falcons, deer, ground hogs, turkey vultures, deer and bison were viewed from the car.
We stopped for lunch at Portage La Prairie and sat near the floodway The rivers run north from just after Thunder Bay, and they continue to run north this far west
Harvest season is underway and you can see the equipment in the fields getting the most of each day. Wheat, canola, and sunflowers were most noticeable. I have never seen sunflowers for as far as the eye can see before. What a sight. "Children of the Sunflower".
It is unseasonably cool here so I believe we may use the services of a hotel or motel or hut at a part rather than camp. All I can say is - "It's a hard life".
Had a great visit with an old friend I have not seen in over 23 years. Very nice evening.
Pictures will follow.
