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.
