We cross the Pioneer river
crossing on The
Whitefox River and pull into the old Bondarenko
It is just a few miles out of Weirdale.
This is looking straight east
from the garage remaining. We will be turning this direction
We crack the whip and pull out of
buddies old yard and head for the Forte a la Corne border.
Looking south we are on a back
road corridor that is as far north we have been in this area.
Packing a suitecase on the back
and handlebar n dash bags. Looking east in the background you
can see fort a la Corne.
December 05,17 just about a year later I....
....re-crop the preceding picture and...
Loaded with saddle bags.
Another suitecase and dash bag.
A rear rack strapped down with baggage.
12:35PM We roll into the old Cecil river
2:30PM Now kinda over the hump we
take a breather and a local dude comes along on a new 6000R and
I am pointing to the fields to our east. Back in there we have a small river
forest and miles of swamp to cross to save us 15 mile go
around, not this trip but on a future one.
This next map shows a few of the corridors cut thru the Fort a
la Corne Forest.
We are just north of the Fort a la Corne!
wikipedia. Fort de la Corne Up to this point we have taken we
have been scouring the country side for a graveyard that shows
up on topographical maps of the area.
I have overshot the general location of the grave yard by a mile
or so...we have stopped at 150 Kilometers of riding to celebrate
the 150 years that Canada has been a county.
Lots of homesteads in this last frontier, scattered about
Lots The next mile of so gets a little more interesting!
A small "off the seat" experience at the ditch marked on this
ONLY IN SASKATCHEWAN!
