Although sad circumstances made this trip possible, I was glad to finally see Saskatchewan and it's Queen City, Regina. Below are some pictures.

The stunning Saskatchewan Legislature. This has become one of my goals, to see all the Canadian Legislative buildings. I've now seen 7 (Charlottetown, Quebec City, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Regina) of them!

Beautiful downtown Regina from the steps of the Legislature!

Really cool twin towers in downtown Regina.

The only legislature to be on it's own man-made lake. Lake Wascana and the surrounding park is just beautiful.

Hotel Saskatchewan. Another goal of mine, to see all the railway hotels. It's a difficult list, because there are the CP Hotels, bought out by Fairmont, the CP hotels bought out by other companies (like the Hotel Saskatchewan) and the CN hotels, like the Queen Elizabeth in Montreal. There are also stand alone hotels that are very old and linked to the railway, such as the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg.

Last but not least, a beautiful prairie sunset. (A bit cold though!)

I'm looking forward to another trip in the warmer weather, to explore other parts of this beautiful province.
