"Tucked Away in the North" Meadow Lake Provincial Park by Bwana_Brown

While visiting my daughter and her family in their new home town of Cold Lake, Alberta, I took advantage to make a short 200-km round trip drive into neighbouring Saskatchewan. Meadow Lake Provincial Park is located just over the border and, since it was a cool day with intermittent sun and clouds, it was a great chance to see what Saskatchewan looks like this far north (about half-way up along the border with Alberta).

    Looks like a plesant drive to Meadow Lake Provincial Park, with the autumn colours and Game Farms along the road. Too bad about the weather though!

    An enjoyable detour into OTBP Sasketchewan. A pity the weather wasn't obliging, but it looks a pleasant area and the welded wildlife certainly were a bonus for your grand-daughter.

    This is interesting, I have seen now Saskatchewan's spring, winter and autumn in a row and I really like autumn best. The colours are mostly magic, let alone the light :-) And yes, the welded animals are cute, I like the butterfly best :-)

    A shame you didn't have better weather, but a great glimpse of another corner of rural Satskatchewan nevertheless. Love the autumn colours, baby elk & giant butterfly :)

    Glenn, lovely little page. Up to now I only made it to Ontario and Quebec in Canada, but I would love to visit Saskatchewan one day.

    Thanks, I'm always curious about Satskatchewan, there's a small town down south with a similar name to my surname :)

    Was hoping to see some Saskatchewan beer tips here, Glenn. This is one province I've not made it to yet.

    I've been to many parts of SK, but not near Meadow Lake yet. Good page! Do you recommend that we drop everything and go visit?
