Happy Canada Day!
Last week I posted about mountains, so this week it seems almost necessary for me to post about the prairies! When I was first able to see the prairies, I was actually quite shocked. It had always been my opinion that the prairies must be dull and boring. After all, there was nothing but fields to see. In real life, there is something so compelling and comforting about the prairies. Being able to see so far into the distance, and the grass and wheat just going on and on, is beautiful. The photos speak for themselves!
