The Bouchers at Home on the Road travel blog

Big prairie, big farms, big sky!!

The copilot checks out scenes on The Yellowhead.

Canada's diversity is everywhere.

End of the day in Saskatoon RV Park.


A long day of driving through beautiful, open country. The Yellowhead Highway (TCH 16) is quite good, and not heavily traveled. The long stretches of open road are interspersed with little towns, or hints of towns, and the scenery is wonderful. Lots of very big farms and prairie lands. Saskatoon is quite a large and modern city - too bad we're not staying longer to see some of what it has to offer. The RV Park we're at is excellent - complete with local homemade foods (we had stuffed cabbage rolls and Saskatoon Berry Pie), and free WiFi (which is really good, since we're well out of range of our Internet Satellite). The Country singer Alan Jackson's road trip trucks passed us heading toward Saskatoon - there were 4 huge trailer trucks - must be quite a show! There's a brand new Country Coach Affinity here in the park, with the slides in and the air on - wonder if it's waiting for Alan :) Tomorrow we're off for Edmonton for at least a couple of days - plan to meet up with friend Jenny Radsma, who's doing a post-doc there. I"m really looking forward to hearing about that, since she's working with one of the Qualitative Queens!
