Medicine Hat, Alberta to Moose Jaw, Saskatchawan (Canada)

What a wonderful drive today. I expected the drive across the Canadian prairie to be boring, but it was a very enjoyable drive.

We started the day by packing up and taking a short drive to Medicine Hat's claim-to-fame: the worldn't largest teepee. The teepee was built for the Calgary Winter Olympics and then moved to Medicine Hat. It looks really tacky from the highway, but up close it is a very interesting structure.

We then start our drive across the prairie. We see buffalo and antelopes, but mainly we see lots of farms and grain elevators.

It's a beautiful day, so we have a picnic lunch at a nice roadside rest.

Our other long stop for the day is at Reed Lake, where we look for birds and enjoy the scenery.

We arrive at our campground in Moose Jaw before dinner and have a quick swim at their indoor pool and waterslide before dinner. Jere and Joe spend the evening at the waterslide, while I relax in the trailer. My stomach isn't feeling so good -- I think the loopy waterslides got the best of me this afternoon :-(
