Fall in the Qu’Appelle Valley
Alex and I took a trek out to the Lumsden and Craven portion of the Qu’Appelle Valley this past weekend to just drive around and see what we we could get up to. We knew that we’d be in for a treat - we’d seen pictures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram of the area and we were not disappointed.
The fall colours are spectacular right now! There’s so much to do in the area, time flew by and we were kind of surprised at how long we were out exploring. First we grabbed a coffee at Brickhouse Bistro in Lumsden, then we took a drive to the top of the valley to take in some of the views.
One stop we made was at St. Michael’s Retreat where we were able to get some great pictures and hike through the hills. We then took a drive towards and past Craven where we found the St. Nicholas Anglican Church, a beautiful, scenic spot in the valley that is a must see if you’re ever in the area. Then on our way back to Lumsden some horses were perfectly posing, begging for their pictures to be taken and we happily obliged. We also stopped at Lincoln Gardens, they have a wonderful pumpkin patch waiting to be photographed.
There’s still so much to explore! We’re going to have to go back to visit Over the Hill Orchards, Pumpkin Hollow, Last Mountain Distillery and take a spin on the Go Karts before it gets too cold.
