Some scenes from Mayfair in Saskatoon.
The trailhead to Grey Owl’s Cabin in Prince Albert National Park. We will be taking the hike in a couple of months.
The Avalokitesvara Buddhist Temple Society Inc. was incorporated in July 1997 in Saskatoon. It came about as a result of a long-time desire within Saskatoon’s Asian community to have a Buddhist monk living and teaching in the city. In May 1997, several hundred people attended a celebration of the Buddha’s birth, which was organized by the society and held in the Union Centre. A commercial building owned by a member had been rented to the society under a legal lease with an annual rent of $1 for a ten-year period. In October 1998 the Avalokitesvara Buddhist Temple relocated to a larger facility in order to accommodate the rising number of members.
We went out to explore Smuts, Saskatchewan, a ghost down about half and hour north east of Saskatoon. It’s almost gone as the only cared for building is the St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church and the church hall.
All of the buildings are suffering structural damage. I can’t see them surviving more than a few winters.
