GRASSLAND NATIONAL PARK
Spent three days in the Grassland NP in southern Saskatchewan.
They have large tent cabins available for those without equipment.
The first night they had a campfire where we made "smores" and learned about the history of the park and why it was here.
We camped in the overflow area which was nearly empty.
Just inside the park entrance we were greeted by this friendly fellow. There are 500 bison in the park and they roam free throughout the year. At the moment the bulls are wandering around by themselves while the female bison have moved to the far corner of the park to give birth to their babies. This was the only bison we saw this close during our stay.
Saturday morning we took a three hour hike with the park naturalist to learn about the ecology of the area and what species are endangered or threatened.
There is a large colony of prairie dogs here in the park, one species they are trying to protect.
I'll try to write tomorrow but internet connection is not always possible.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we experience life off the grid and down the road.
