Canada & Alaska

Michele & Stephen's trip in 2012

North in Manitoba

When you tell a Canadian that you are driving east-west across their country they usually warn you that the central prairie area of Manitoba is very very boring! So we decided to avoid it by driving north and crossing into Saskatchewan near Flin Flon.

The750 km between Winnipeg and Flin Flon, whilst not boring prairie could not be described as exciting.

Until a mother black bear and three cubs walked across the road! (We didn't get our cameras out until the first three were in the bushes on the right.

All over in 20 seconds!
