Saskatchewan

SASKATCHEWAN –

Após Medicine Hat, seguimos pela 1, passando por Maple Creek, Swift Current, Moose Jaw,  em direção a oeste para chegarmos ‘a capital do estado – Regina – onde visitamos os amigos Lucas, Djenane e o pequeno Charles, estacionando o motor home em frente a casa deles, no centro da cidade.

Regina e uma cidade vibrante oferecendo ao turista variados restaurantes, desde cafés a finos e sofisticados restaurantes; nos últimos anos o cenário de fabricação de cerveja artesanal tornou-se uma atração no  Warehouse District, com várias cervejarias ‘a disposição do público para degustação.

Galerias de arte para os apreciadores, como a MacKenzie Art Gallery Gallery of Regina, Dunlop Art Gallery na Bibloteca Publica de Regina, além de galerias de arte particulares como a Slate Fine Art Gallery e a Nouveau Gallery.

As quartas e aos sábados pela manha no verão, o City Square se transforma no Regina Farmer’s Market, oferecendo produtos locais e food trucks.

Um dos ícones Canadenses – a Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)– Policia Montada Canadense, possui um centro de exibição e experiencias interativas chamado Royal Canadian Mounted Police Heritage Center, no qual se pode visitar a histórica Capela da RCMP – o prédio mais antigo de Regina. Também e possível assistir aos exercícios dos cadetes durante o Sergeant Major’s Parade.

Aproveitamos a oportunidade para visitar o Wascana Center, localizado ‘as margens do Lago Wascana. Ai se encontra o Royal Saskatchewan Museum – o único local em que se pode ficar frente a frente com um “Megamunch” – o T-Rex que “reside” no museu. Local perfeito para se familiarizar com a história das culturas indígenas e da história  natural da terra que se tornou Saskatchewan. Também ai está o Saskatchewan Legislative Building – construído em 1912 e um dos mais belos prédios do oeste do Canada’; a MacKenzie Art Gallery, o Willow on Wascana – com a mais bela vista da cidade; o Saskatchewan Science Center e Kramer IMAX; o Conexus Art Center e o Wascana Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary.

Ao sairmos de Regina, tomamos a Highway 6 para o sul, chegando a cidade de Minton, onde aproveitamos para passar em um banco e trocar dólares canadenses por americanos. De Minton seguimos para a cidade fronteiriça de Regway e cruzamos o posto de fronteira de volta para os Estados Unidos, chegando a cidade de Plentywood, no estado de Montana.

 

SASKATCHEWAN –

After Medicine Hat we followed 1 and went through the towns of Maple Creek, Swift Current, Moose Jaw, arriving at the capital City of Regina, where we visited friends Lucas, Djenane and little Charles, parking the RV in front of their place.

Regina is a vibrant city offering the visitor a number of great restaurants, from casual cafes to fine and sophisticated dining. Over the last few years, Regina’s craft brewing scene has become an attraction all its own in the Warehouse District, with a variety of award-winning breweries serving signature beers.

It is a City of the Arts, presenting several art galleries. Such as the MacKenzie Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Regina, the Dunlop Art Gallery at the Regina Public Library, as well as private galleries such as Slate Fine Art Gallery and Nouveau Gallery.

On Wednesday and Saturday mornings in the summer, the City Square is transformed by the Regina Farmer’s Market, with local produce and busy food trucks.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Heritage Center in Regina is a good place to learn more about the ongoing story of a Canadian icon. In the exhibit hall one can check out the Musical ride virtual reality experience or driving simulator. On the grounds of the RCMP Academy, “Depot” Division, one can visit the historic RCMP Chapel – Regina’s oldest building, or watch the cadets practicing drills in the Sergeant Major’s Parade, week-days at 12:45 p.m.

Here we took the opportunity to visit the Wascana Centre, along the shores of the Wascana Lake. Here is then Royal Saskatchewan Museum – only place to come face-to-face with Megamunch – the museum’s resident T.Rex. A place to learn about the story of Indigenous cultures and the natural history of the land that became Saskatchewan. Here is also located the Saskatchewan Legislative Building – built in 1912 – is one of the grandest buildings in Western Canada; the MacKenzie Art Gallery, the Willow on Wascana – boasting the best view in the city from its lakeside patio seating; the Saskatchewan Science Center/Kramer IMAX; the Conexus Art Center and the Wascana Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary.

Upon leaving Regina we took highway 6, southbound, getting to the town if Minton, where we exchanged the Canadian dollars we had for US dollars. From Minton we went on south getting to the border town of Regway; and this is where we crossed the border into the US again, arriving in the town of Plentiwood, in Montana.
