South Saskatchewan River

Carol and Glenn are almost out of Alberta and into Saskatchewan.  They are happily paddling down the South Saskatchewan River and are quite enjoying the astonishing geology of their surroundings! Also, they are finding many interesting fossils along the way!  Quite different from what they are used to seeing in Ontario!

A few days ago they found a great campsite just before Medicine Hat, Alberta, under a massive Cottonwood tree!  The river is lined with these trees and are an excellent source of shade!

In the picture below, Carol is enjoying her breakfast of oatmeal, prunes and flax seed under a beautiful Cottonwood tree.  An excellent place to put your feet out and relax before a busy day of paddling down the South Saskatchewan River.

Keep on Paddling!
