Tisdale to LaRonge

FTLComm - Tisdale - Thursday, December 15, 2005
It is not something special to the year 2005, December weather in Saskatchewan can be extremely diverse. We have seen tumbleweeds rolling with the wind down the middle of a street in December and a year ago it was -30º so this past weekend when the temperature worked its way above freezing for several days taking all of the small amount of snow with it, seem only normal.

We left Tisdale at 9:00 Sunday morning and the first picture in the slide show (QuickTime clip) shows the sun peeking through the trees east of the Tisdale 7-11 and the "Oh God" sky above was looking south just this side of Valparasio. We stopped to pick up some things in Prince Albert and have lunch then set off north toward La Ronge. I have made that trip many times and with the glaring mid day sun behind me and almost no sign of snow it was hard to accept the fact that it is already mid December.

The slideshow has images of the turn off for Christopher Lake, Prince Albert National Park and the south side of LaRonge then ends with the peek-a-boo trip back on Monday morning as the fog choked off the light and limited visibility in some areas to just over a hundred feet.
