Saskatchewan Heritage : Over 40 years ago I started school in White Bear Saskatchewan.  A group of friends travel near here in for an annual goose hunt each fall. The location is ideal, near Diefenbaker Dam on the South Saskatchewan River. The land is rich with farming history, as is evidenced by many old farm buildings and yards littered with abandoned farm equipment and memorabilia, reminiscent of days gone by.  Herds of antelope now wander across the land, something that would seldom have been seen this far north when I was growing up.

This area is on the major flyway for geese migrating to and from northern Canada.  At dawn, the honking of geese coming from the lake is a roar.  Then there is a momentary hush, followed by a swoosh of wings reminiscent of a jet taking off.  In a minute the honking resumes and the sky fills with flocks of geese.  From an eastern vantage point, the lines of snow geese look like strings of white Christmas lights, vacillating through the air.  The spectacle rivals the classic pictures of Africa where huge flocks of large birds take off. 

On one trip, Bruce and I decided to break from the pack and go exploring, taking pictures of abandoned farms. He was a great sport, modeling fearlessly in several of the pictures.  While it was great fun, no question he will hear about these pictures from his hunting buddies for a long time to come.


The pictures are a collection of older to more recent photos.  While the photography is not always stellar, I think you will enjoy this gallery.
