The 2010 Olympic games prompted me to select today's photo. Canadians are not known for patriotism and flag-waving, but the opening ceremony to the Olympic games was a proud moment for us. One of the segments I especially loved was the boy that danced and whirled in the air and every time he touched down, more of the prairie showed up. That reminded me of this photo that I took in August 2007, when I spent 6-weeks driving from Toronto to Banff in the Rocky Mountains and back again ( a distance of 3500 miles or 5600 kms).
I remember driving along this road in central Saskatchewan for at least ten minutes and noticing that there were no other cars and absolutely no change in the direction of the road or view of the prairie. It amazed me that any place could be so absolutely flat and any road could be so unerringly straight. It was the prairie photo I had been looking for.
p.s. Just a reminder to join my giveaway in honour of the Olympics.
