Rocco enjoying a beautiful, warm autumn day in Moose Jaw's Crescent Park.
The landscape near Eastend. Rolling hills as far as the eye can see.
You start seeing these signs around Gull Lake.
This rendering is close to life size.
Entrance to Old Man on His Back Visitor Centre
We took a short drive and walk from the Visitor Centre and found the plains bison that roam this area freely.
The dining room at Redmond House Bed & Breakfast and Dining Establishment. So beautiful.
Owner/operator/chef, Michael Morrow has done an amazing job of renovating this nearly 100 year old home into a bed and breakfast. Each room has so much character.
Such a welcoming room.
Baked Portabella Mushroom, delicious!
Main course, Filet of Halibut with Chiroz, also amazing. Michael is a trained chef who prepares everything from scratch, and it shows in each of his dishes.
I love these little bottles :)
Dessert, keylime pie...need I say more?
My room at Redmond House Bed & Breakfast. Everthing about this B&B is unique, special, and full of character. In my opinion, a meal and night's stay there is worth the trip to Maple Creek alone.
The beautiful Cypress Hills Winery.
View of the vineyard from the deck.
Inside the Cypress Hills Winery.
Cute koi fish in the ponds in the yard.
Gates to the vineyard.
More cool southwest Saskatchewan landscape.
The fall colours are gorgeous this time of year in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park.
Inside the Cypress Hills Visitor Centre.
The "Classroom", which was build this year to house groups of children and astronomy-lovers alike when they visit the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park Dark Sky Preserve.
Coolest building, which houses a powerful computerized telescope called a Celestron. In 2012, the general public will be able to experience the Celestron by appointment, or when demonstrations are being offered.
The roof wasn't open, but I thought I'd still take a look.
Ready to take on the zipline canopy tour at Cypress Hill Eco Adventures, located within Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park.
My fearless leaders heading up the 40-foot rope ladder to the first platform.
The 80-foot sky bridge that connects two of the platforms. Each of the structures is designed to absorb weight, so they are constantly moving, which can be hard to get used to, but is extremely exciting to do.
It's a loooong way down.
Cypress Hills Eco Adventures also offers rock wall climbing and slacklines.
Ghostown Blues Bed & Breakfast, a taste of the old wild west.
Guests can stay in one of their two sheep wagons. Sheep wagons, or sheep camps, were living quarters on wheels which sheep herders lived in as they followed the sheep herds, they are larger and designed to be mobile dwellings (the first RV's)!
Sheep wagon #2.
Inside one of the sheep wagons. So many of the details are original, amazing...and cozy.
The original stove is inside the wagon.
There are also cabins.
This was my home away from home for the night. Each wagon and cabin are filled with cowboy decor and details that give each of them their own unique character.
The church that acts of the dining hall and meeting space.
Exterior of the church.
Inside the church.
My room :)
Rocco met a friend while at Ghostown Blues.
