One of my first stops on my summer adventure of 2019 was Grasslands National Park, located in Southern Saskatchewan. It is a wonderful place where despite the lack of national vertical structures like bushes and trees, there are still quite a lot of wildlife to see here! It must be because there isn’t that many places they can hide. I saw prairie dogs, bison, deer and owls!
Also the view is quite nice! I can see for miles and miles and perhaps spot a bison in the distance even in the middle of the day.
In August the daytime can be quite hot, especially during hikes in the middle of the day and there’s no shade to rest in, so make sure to bring your water and a water bowl for the doggie! In the nighttime it is quite cool so make sure to pack your warm clothes and a nice thick sleeping bag!
