A quiet town

Prince Albert (commonly known as PA) is a quiet town about 1 hour 15 minutes out of Saskatoon.
When I was out and about, everywhere was accessed via car/truck/van etc. I hardly saw anybody walking although there were footpaths.
There are some lovely areas and places to enjoy.
PA has the Saskatchewan running along the town, there are plenty of shops, garages, hotel/motels, and a casino.
There is also good access to Prince Albert National Park (approx. 25 minutes away, by car).

The Saskatchewan River

When people do walk, they walk along the trails by the river. People walk their dogs and hope to not run into any wild bears! It was reported last year that a wild bear was captured at the end of one of the trails!

The river is lined with trees. In the fall, there is a mass of different colours and it is beautiful to see.
In the summer, people get out their disposable BBQs and set them up by the river to enjoy an afternoon with a view and the sun on their backs.

The land of living Skies

On every reg/licence plate from Saskatchewan is the above statement.
I was truely amazed by the skies. I have never seen so many stars, so many clear nights, and hardly any light polution.

It's easy to spot the constellations and see stars behind stars. In parts of Saskatchewan you can see the end of The Northern Lights (which I did!!).

It's also named so as the clouds change so often. You can have an overcast day, then within 10 minutes, you have a clear sky!
