Emma Lake is 2 hours north of Saskatoon, just south of the Prince Albert National Park. Many people think of Saskatchewan as boring flat farm land with not much to see. But the lakes in the northern half of the province are truly beautiful and definitely worth a trip to visit our neighbouring province to the East.
No summer is complete for me without a trip to Emma Lake, and this year was no exception. My grandparents built a cabin there in the 1950’s and my family has been making memories and spending summers there ever since. My parents bought their own cabin on the lake the year I was born and many of my best childhood memories are from summers spent there with my sisters and cousins.
I love bringing my own two little ones to Emma Lake to make similar memories. From days spent playing on the sandy beaches or out on the water whether boating or swimming, evening walks for ice cream and nights filled with campfires, fireworks and the northern lights, it was a wonderful summer vacation! I hope that the experiences my own children have in nature, at the lake, helps them to appreciate the beauty of our country and instills in them a respect for our land.
