On my recent visit to Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan I spent a lot of time behind my camera trying to capture the drama of a park most people haven’t heard of.
Before this visit I was last in Saskatchewan in the late 1970’s. I’d been working at a remote fly-in bush camp north of La Ronge in the winter. One night it was so cold in our tent that my contacts froze in the saline solution. It was a memorable time but not in the right sort of way.
Fast forward to last week. I decided I was overdue for a return visit to Saskatchewan. So off I went on a solo road trip with the plan to move at a leisurely pace and explore, hike and discover Grasslands National Park, located in southern Saskatchewan just above the Montana border.
I drove Flex , the car loaned to me by Ford and told the fellow where I was going. He said to me “Never heard of the place.” And that I think is the reality for most of the world. Grasslands National Park only sees about 10,000 visitors a year. I’ll be posting more about the area in the near future.
For now enjoy these photos of Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan.
Have you ever been to Grasslands National Park – or to Saskatchewan for that matter?
