May 29, 2017 - Moose Mountain to Souris

I stopped off at the Visitors’ Centre on the way out this morning to take a photo of the building & find out about Cannington Manor. I was told there wouldn’t be anyone out there today but there was still plenty to see even if the buildings weren’t open. It was a gravel road for about 20 km & had corrugations (washboards) for part of the way which were OK when I got the speed right & in some stretches it was smoother than the highway. Still a very strong wind today & showers around so I didn’t spend a lot of time at the village because it...

Jul 3, 2007 - Souris Suspension Foot Bridge

On our final day in the Brandon area, we enjoyed a short round trip to Souris located on the steep banks of the Souris River. The town is famous for its 102 year old, 582ft free suspension bridge over the Souris River. The bridge is the longest of its kind in Canada and was built by Squire Snowden in 1904. He built it as a convenience to allow him access to his property cross the river. We walked across the bridge, Heather very dubiously and Jenny as quickly as possible! It certainly moved a lot!
