My first story for Coril150 was about the Northern Lights and how I now regret not taking advantage of all the opportunities I had growing up in northern Saskatchewan to take in their splendor. I was given the opportunity to avoid a similar mistake on my recent trip back home this June. As part of a quick visit with family at one of the northern lakes, I took my husband on a detour to small towns along Saskatchewan highways – the best way to expose a new visitor to the 306 in my opinion. Studded along the ‘scenic route’ (which they all are), between animals and farm machinery, are the familiar grain elevators I took little notice of growing up. We stopped often to take in their beauty. We were 20 minutes late for dinner, but I was filled with nostalgia and appreciation, and it was well worth it.
