Saskatchewan Canada (7) – The Great Sandhills

In the southwest corner of Saskatchewan, you will find The Great Sandhills that cover approximately 1,900 square kilometres.  On a business trip near that area, my husband (pilot) and I took a small detour before heading back home.  These photos reflect the vastness of this area.
