I am heading off to Saskatoon today. It has been 20 years since I was last there. Rather shameful delay, actually, since I earned my geophysics badge in Saskatoon and was treated really well by all the professors at the University of Saskatchewan. (In other words, none of them failed me.) I should have not waited twenty years to return for a visit, but it is an eight-hour drive from my home in Calgary. That makes it too far to drive, yet too close to fly. So, I just don’t go there. However, with the help of a good friend, I finally drove up to the city named for a bright blue low-hanging fruit. The route between the two cities is a rather monotonous trail. Lots of wheat and canola. And hundreds of ranches with alfalfa and clover – great nectar sources that make the area one of the best in the world for honey production. Today’s blog posting is simply a few pictures from the drive.
