We left Yorkton and passed beautiful yellow fields. I noticed a shiny onion dome far away. A few kilometres later we passed Insinger and what looked like an abandoned church. Linda wanted to stop to check it out – it’s a good lesson for me in travelling to be able to explore places that pique our curiosity.
Luckily there was a second driveway and we slowed enough to enter it and park.
We found this abandoned church to explore.
There was broken glass and open spaces.
The broken window offered a view of the interior.
It looked like winter hadn’t quite done the damage.
Along the way Linda realized that Humboldt was sort of on route to Saskatoon so we turned north. We passed this sign for a school and stopped to check it out. The rooftop was all that was left.
The sign for the town is a nice ironwork sculpture. The town is working towards finding a site to put up a memorial but they are not there yet. The go fund me campaign raised 15 million in 12 days – amazing!
One of the attraction is this water tower that has been modified to accommodate tourists. The pipes and valves are there and an interior staircase has been built as well as an observation deck to view the surroundings.
It was a nice stop and we fuelled up in town. We’ve found in the prairies that finding fuel can be challenging at times.
We passed so many wonderful yellow canola fields but stopping and taking photos would be a challenge due to construction or lack of shoulder.
We went to beautiful Diefenbaker Park at the suggestion of Linda’s son and we watched a train go by on the bridge over the South Saskatchewan River in Saskatoon.
We are planning on exploring the town in the next few days.
