Saskatchewan and most of Alberta have skylines that stretch forever. The clouds and colours can be amazing.
We had all kinds of weather to spruce up our recent camping trip to Dinosaur Provincial Park and day-long excursion to Saskatchewan. Extreme heat, gusty wind, clouds, and torrential rain. All this makes this the “Land of the Living Skies” as Saskatchewan Tourism boasts.
A couple of the views had me wondering how anyone living in rural flat-land ever gets into running. For me, running inspiration definitely does not come from roads that go on forever with nary a curve or hill. I sure wouldn’t want to take up any sort of slow mode of transportation when you can’t see the next undulation, corner, road, or even a car, let alone a pedestrian or bicycle. I’d probably be into motorcycle racing or some other adrenaline pumping speed sport.
While I was happy for our adventure to this huge expanse, I was glad to get back to running in the hills and trees even if that means a little more city to go with it.
