About 10 min after we got to the campground, she walked through but nervous because her baby was in another direction
Well Cypress Hills was OK not somewhere we would travel to again. However, we were only in the campground about 10 min. and a mum moose strolled through our campsite, some kids were chasing her and her baby (idiots), and about an hour later 2 deer walked through, and on the other hand if your a saskatchwenite and you never get to see trees it would be a great place to take your kids for a weekend. The next day we saw a mother duck and her troop of babies on the lake. So back to our travels, we decided to take the "red coat trail"- heritage and all that- the word trail says it all, never complain about BC or Alberta roads because we were down to 50 and never over 80k an hour. Lots of farming fields and I am sure we saw the curvature of the earth a couple of times after we left Cypress Hills. We were amazed at all the ponds and slough's in that part of the province. So our second stop in Saskatchewan was the walmart in Weyburn (called the city of opportunity) Chuck didn't want to drive to a camp ground 22 k
Just wasn't their color
They just came walking through the neighboring campground in Cypress Hills
out of our way sheesh. So we left Weyburn at 7:30 am and the roads improved slightly after we left the road coat trail in Manitoba and swung north on 21 to the transcanada, had to transverse a road through a swamp which was rather dicey at times looking straight at the ducks, (much better choice for campsites) roads improved SLIGHTLY. The weather is hot. We arrived in Portage La Prairie about 12:30 pm, so a light day of traveling time and found the Miller Campgrounds, lovely place and we will stay put for a couple of days. Its 6pm and the heat has turned to a thunder storm. Tomorrow brings on new adventures and things to see.
