Went for a nice backcountry ride yesterday... to the Sandilands area of south eastern Manitoba. These are believed to be the ancient seashore beaches from post glacial Lake Agassiz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Agassiz) . This picture is taken from a burnt out ridge (forest fire) and is likely pretty much the highest point in southern Manitoba, with water from the Laurentian Shield to the east, draining northwest to the Red River and Lake Winnipeg. Gorgeous view from up there looking out onto the prairies unfolding as far as the eye can see.
