We left Winnipeg around 9:30 am, skirted around the south side of the city, and stopped to fuel at a Flying J on the west side. Jennifer took over the driving responsibilities, and we were off across the Manitoba prairie. The topography is mostly flat in this part of the world, but the views of the fields covered with the yellow flowers of canola and the blue flowers of flax are absolutely spectacular.
Both Jenn and Pete are rail fans and love to watch trains and travel with our railcars. Most of the Trans Canada Highway is runs side by side with the mainline of the Canadian Pacific Railroad, and we were fortunate spot a number of trains along the way. This is a heavily traveled rail line the connects Vancouver, BC with Montreal and Chicago.
We crossed the provincial border into Saskatchewan in late afternoon and found a campground in the hamlet of Moosomin. Like most of the campgrounds along the Trans Canada, this one was "rustic," but provided what was needed for a good night's rest. Milepost 2334.
