|The Great Sand Hills|
The Great Sand hills was cared for by John Booth (1926 - 2007)
""John was caretaker of the Sand hills Stockman's Association from 1950 - 2001. He was a rancher and lived in this area all his live.
|57 years of boots!|
John was 81 years old and rode saddle horse at every round up for the last 57 years. He believed in the preservation of this natural habitat. He understood the fragility of these great hills.."No one should judge another person until you've walked in his boots...that's the start of a great day"
John lived his life to the fullest. He build an archway of his boots, a cowboy's way to show his appreciation and love for life"" written by Gordon Booth.
After our hike we again, drive down plowed sand weaving through cattle, and rolling hills towards a paved highway.
|Salt hills of Chaplin|
We arrive at Chaplin, a salt mining town. Lakes are beginning to appear. Lakes with a salt base and snow like mounds cresting the water. This is salt. Chaplin is home of "Salt of the Earth"
We carry on through Moose Jaw, where we stopped for a refreshing cup of java and chocolate chai and finally arrive very tired in Regina, where we spent the night of restful sleep.
It's on the road again. We're not sure where we will end up or how far we will drive today.
