Saskatchewan: #1 between Regina, Saskatchewan and Brandon, Manitoba



Northern Lights are often accessible across Saskatchewan

Why Travel between Regina and Brandon?

This area east of Regina is Saskatchewan's breadbasket. This are is flat, and nothing but fields

Here is the itinerary for the 363 km along Highway #1 between Regina, Saskatchewan and Brandon, Manitoba

Wascana Lake Boat Docks & Ramp Regina is the ultimate prairie town, starting out as a First Nations settlement, who left piles of buffalo bones there from their hunts. The railroad built a station to stop for water from Pile of Bones Creek. As the town grew, water was piped in 52 km from Buffalo Pound Lake. Wasana Creek has since been dammed in the 1880s to create a recreational oasis near the city's downtown and home to several museums as well as the province's Legislature.

The lake now separates the Trans-Canada from the city's downtown. The city now has some of the most unique and dramatic office architecture in the West. Regina is home to Canada's first elected socialist government, and invented government car insurance and government-run health care as a result of the drive of native son Tommy Douglas.

The land east and southeast of Regina is so flat, the locals say if your dog ran away, it would be days before the wagging tail would disappear over the horizon. The highways run pretty straight, not having to navigate around natural obstacles. The recurring grain elevators here symbolize the vas agricultural capacity of this land, and are the larger-than-life milestones indicating towns alongside the railway. Just before White City, the highway climbs up the eastern edge of the Ice Age's Lake Regina, and flat land is replaced by less agriculturally productive rolling hills.

Saskatchewan is best known for its many Grain Elevators It has taken the 10,000 years since the last ice age for repeated generations of grasses to deposits layers of organic matter and nitrogen to provide a foundation for the area's agriculture. Some estimate that after a century of farming, half of the topsoils have been lost to wind and water erosion.

On the flat prairie, farms are surrounded by trees planted as wind breaks from the winter winds, and to provide shade in summer heat. Some estimate over 400 million trees and bushes were planted from the Indian Head Nursery since 1902. The sheltered valley of the Qu'Apelle River was a popular spot for the First Nations to harvest the indigenous Saskatoon berries.


South of Whitewood is Moose Mountain Provincial Park. This forested oasis in the prairie has many small lakes and offers lots of recreation to area residents. Moosomin, 47 kilometres further east on the highway, is named for the mooseberry (a tall cranberry bush).

Sign at the Saskatchewan-Manitoba Border From this point, the highway begins a gentle drop of almost 500 feet toward Virden, Manitoba. This marks the western boundary of ancient Lake Souris. At the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border, travelers will notice white hilltops to the north of the Trans-Canada, resulting from erosion caused by excessive cultivation.

The stretch between Virden and Oak Lake has fertile sandy lake bottom farmlands. At Alexander, you can head south to Souris (about 24 km) to Canada's longest swing bridge, that stretches 178 metres across the Souris River. A nearby agate pit extracts Souris agate, petrified wood, jasper and epidote.
