Southern Saskatchewan is beautiful
It was pretty broken up back in '07 when I took that pic and it was broken up even worse last month. I love Southern Saskatchewan.

Worst prairie road was 501 across Alberta. I think they source their road gravel from an ancient river bed. It's the size and shape of marbles, polished smooth by centuries of current.

And they must have a mandate to use a minimum amount every year or they can't get more the next. The marbles were 5 to 6 inches deep along some sections of 501. Took me over three hours to cover one 100km stretch riding in the grass beside the road, the gravel was unrideable. Wouldn't even want to try driving a truck in that stuff. Only passed one other vehicle using the road and I crossed half or Alberta on it.

Nope, much more north than that. As north as you can get on the east side of this continent

That is Ha-Ling mtn (Chinaman's Peak) and the road is up to Spray Lakes. Canmore. Dust, dust, dust.
