Ran into these horses north of Sandy Lake (Highway 470 I think)—almost literally. I drove slowly towards them, thinking they would step out of the way. But instead, they all gathered around the car, licking and sucking at anything they could get their lips around—even the windshield wipers. I honked and shouted, rocked the car back and forth, cranked the radio, but nothing phased them. The only thing that got them to move was a little squirt of wiper fluid; I hated to do that, but I seriously thought they otherwise would have destroyed the car.
A look at the tiny community of Solsgirth, Manitoba.
We were treated to such an amazing, long Autumn in 2016, that I was able to squeeze in one last Manitoba road trip. This one started at what might be may favorite grain elevator in the province—Oberon, Manitoba.
Last few shots from the second last Manitoba road trip of the year. That’s it for me until after the new year. Have a great holiday season, everyone.
A second round of Melita photos—this time with some sunshine. I was really disappointed to find the Strand Theatre under Renovation and without its sign. With its painted red stucco, The Strand looked like something you might expect to find in small town Texas or New Mexico. No matter what material/color combo are used to replace it, it’s going to hard to top that kind of character.
Lyleton—a small community in southwest Manitoba.
Editor’s note: Although the skies were looking pretty ominous, no storm materialized.
