Was a nice evening to go out and try a startrail photo at the Foxleigh Church. Was hoping for the Aurora Borealis to make a stronger appearance but it was very weak. Picked up a little of it in the bottom left of the picture though.
Have you been to Great Blue Heron Provincial Park yet? It's one of the newest provincial parks here in Saskatchewan, being designated in 2013. Here you will find many lakes, including Christopher Lake, Emma Lake, and the pictured Anglin Lake.
While camping here this summer we had a relaxing day at the beach, saw a black bear, and enjoyed a couple of hikes! Pictured here the trailhead of the Jacobsen and Moose Trails 🥾🐻🌲.
I'm really excited to share this photo from last Friday! Initially it appeared that this lynx was travelling alone, but there is actually a second one behind it (this photo only shows a mysterious grey blob in the trees, but don't be fooled, it's actually a real live lynx!) Lynx are such beautiful animals with their black ear tufts and mutton chops. They also have enormous feet aka nature's snowshoes. Even with their snowshoes and long legs, they aren't fast runners. Which anyone who has actually tried to run in snowshoes may understand!
Instead of chasing they use stealth, waiting for their prey and pounce on an unsuspecting snowshoe hare!
What do you do to recharge over the weekend? I love to get outside with my dogs. I find being in nature recharges me like nothing else.
Last weekend was pretty cold so I went to my first Yin class @modoyogasask and holy moly it felt amazing!
Did you know @leadsaskatoon is open Saturday mornings and has a bunch of options for pilates classes? Getting your body moving is a great way to start off the weekend, especially if you have a very repetitive job (like most of us do). After your class you can stroll right over to the clinic for a treatment to double up on your self care 🙌🏼 Open 9-1 every Saturday. I’ll see you there!

Starting to look forward to spring and summer. The colorless-ness of winter gets to me after a while.
I had seen a photo of this old church posted by a friend and instantly loved it. Part of my family is British by descent (my Great Grandma/pa) came from England and I love medieval history, and castles, knights, etc. I wish I could have been a knight. We found the location of this church and drove the hundreds of kilometres to get there. It was a wonderful sight to behold and had a medieval feel to it, so I edited the photo to look as if it belonged in Game of Thrones or something like that. It is in pretty bad shape unfortunately, but was still lovely. The location will NOT be given out due to vandalism and disrepair it’s in.

Anyone else getting excited about these longer and warmer days?! Pretty soon we will be enjoying the golden fields of wheat and canola as we drive through the prairies. 🌾
This particular barn can be found near Tuxford, Saskatchewan, which is where highways 2, 42, and 202 all meet. Incorporated in 1907, the village of Tuxford still holds on strong with over a population of over 100, with many residents commuting to Moose Jaw for work.
'Frozen Longings' ~ My eyes watered and started to run and the scathing wind froze the drops almost instantly...as I blinked hard against it all and turned my back against the wind, I wondered if the frost on the old tractor were from her tears...longing for the warm summer days of old....
Every element of this northern stronghold is intuitive. Cabin life 44 miles off the beaten path is luxurious and easy. Ingenuity born out of decades of refinement and a past life on the trap line. Thanks for sharing your home with me Kim, Eda, @spenblack15 and @wilburn09.

Each day provides its own gifts.
To nom? Or not to nom? That is the question.
Did you have a good long weekend? We spent ours driving down Saskatchewan back roads, which is always an exciting way to spend a day! Especially when you stumble across abandoned farm houses you've never seen before. 🏠🌾
