Memories from Selwyn Lake Lodge 2015

blog-July-1-2015-1-transit-air-saskatchewanThe smoke was back this morning at Selwyn Lake Lodge.  There was so much of it that there was concern about flying out on our way home.  But although we were late, not leaving till 5 PM, we made the first leg to Stony Rapids on the Beaver.  Departing at 5 was in a nick of time to catch the 6 PM Transwest Air flight from there to La Ronge then Prince Albert then on to Saskatoon.  It was a rugged ride dodging thunderheads and smoke.  We arrived in Saskatoon around 10 PM, just in time for a fun night on the Canadian town.

 

A special thanks goes out toe RA Beattie Outdoor Productions and Ron Striker of Adventure Destinations for bringing me along on this unforgettable adventure to Saskatchewan!

Austin forgot his pliers for a pike trip.  Same as no gun for gun fight!
