Two Week Reconnaissance Road Trip

We wanted to test the effluent – see if there was enough abandoned dereliction left around to warrant a longer photography expedition. So the adventure began: we hopped in the Jeep and headed south, mostly Saskatchewan ghost towns, for two weeks. We absolutely found stuff: perishing, disintegrating, crackling: Whizz Bang near Val Marie, Looked Like an Egyptian in Robsart, Orkney Oil Slick on Marvin’s Grocery window, The Piano (Has Been Drinking), and The Bone House. We took a side trip to visit the healthy free ranging wild Bison that had been repatriated into Grasslands National Park – what a beautifully rare environment – what a wicked thunderstorm – our poor old tent received a direct red-zone hit…

    We are looking to go exploring in Saskatchewan, we are from Regina. Unfortunately we do not have two weeks to spend, so could you perhaps let me know which area(s) had the most to see and/or are in close proximity to each other? Thank you,

      If you are looking for dereliction head south-west, down through Avonlea, Mossbank, Gravelbourg, Eastend, and the iconic abandoned town of Robsart. If you want some outdoor pursuits Grasslands National Park is incredible, both east and west sides.
