Road trip!

Ordinarily at this time of year, we would be heading to Maui. But a friend of ours is getting married there in April, and we didn't want to go twice in 6 months. So instead of Maui, we're headed... east, to the fall colours of Ontario.

Today we got to...
The prairie at sunset
...via Medicine Hat and the world's largest teepee.
Bigger than it looks
Along the way, the cottonwoods and poplars range from 50-90% turned.
In Medicine Hat 
While not everywhere we drove today was flat, it's certainly flatter than where I live.
Outside Medicine Hat
A bazillion migrating birds on Reed Lake, SK 
The Trans Canada, between Brooks and Medicine Hat
We saw lots of farmers harvesting fields today, and tomorrow, we hopefully will be able to get "up close and personal" with this. We're stopping in at Brandon to visit a friend, and she has some "plots to take off", which I suspect means harvesting some sections of field where different growing or weed control techniques have been tested. Stay tuned for exciting photos of combines... or something (I mean, it could be scissors. I know nothing about grain farming)
