Visited the Very Famous Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on April 7, 2009

At this time, Saskatchewan was economically booming and was labelled "Saskaboom."  It was the world's leading producer of uranium and potash.  Nonetheless, it was not appealing to visit but I had to since I needed to finish my Canada tour.

From the airport, I took the bus and the driver dropped me off the Meewasin Valley Centre at the downtown area.  It was the perfect start off point for a nice walk along the river trail.  Along the trail, I passed by the Friendship Park, Kwanis Memorial Park, Kinsmen Park, Mendel Museum, Capilano Lookout bridge and the Weir.

I had a lot of pictures at the suspension bridge because it gave me a nice view of the trail and downtown Saskatoon.

I arrived at Saskatoon at 11:00 am and my downtown tour was over by 2:00 pm.  As much as I wanted to fly out earlier, the next flight was still at 7:00 pm.

Saskatoon was a very small city with lesser activities compared to Moncton and Charlottetown.  It was also dusty.
