Most of the day I spent driving through the Canadian prairielands. Amazing country to see. Prairies as far as the eye can see and thousands of pothole lakes. Every little pond and lake held countless ducks. I stopped and watched a Red Fox catch an early morning breakfast, saw a moose wading in a flooded area and drove by a hugh flock of White Pelicans. I stopped in the Quill Lake International Bird Area and found out that this is one of the areas the Whooping Crane calls home. When I came back through this area in the fall I will spend a little more time exploring it. Northern Saskatchewan started to change from prairies to more rolling country. The pothole lakes and ponds became rivers. The open prairies are becoming more wooded. I am seeing the land change before my eyes as each mile goes by. It truely is amazing to see it first hand! Tomorrow I will head northwest across Alberta and into British Columbia. Dawson Creek will be one of my stops along the way. I should see some big changes in the
countryside from now on!
