As we begin our drive east, we leave the mountains of Waterton Park behind us. June 20: We're crossing the rolling Alberta prairie We stop at the visitor's center at the Alberta-Saskatchewan border In Saskatchewan you can see for miles across the low rolling hills We spot the city symbol of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan
Bill is checking email at our Moose Jaw motel June 21: It was a rainy day as we visited the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Museum in Regina. The museum explains the history of the RCMP and why it was formed Next the museum shows the present day activities and duties of the organization. Looks like they've got a new recruit... and he's even wearing boots.
Mid-day we enter the province of Manitoba We arrive at our destination in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and are greeted by Dale Frederickson at his front gate. We'll be camping in Ken's and Dale's camper for the next two nights. June 22: This is the Canadian Mint in Winnipeg where they not only - make Canada's coins but also the coins of up to 80 other countries. We go for the tour of the Mint, something you can't do at a U.S. mint.  - The tour proved to be very interesting, but no cameras were allowed inside.
