We visited the International Peace Garden this morning. It straddles the USA and Canadian borders and is maintained by both countries. We were a little early since they were just planting small annuals in the flower beds. It must be absolutely beautiful later in the summer.

Sep 17, 2012 - International Peace Gardens

We didn’t get much chance to look around this park yesterday as my bursitis was acting up again, but we took our time this morning driving out. It’s quite a large park and there are roads snaking all over it. Lots of waterfowl on the Turtle River, especially in some shallow ponds near the entrance.
