Qu’Appelle Valley

Qu’Appelle Valley

Location: Saskatchewan

The Qu’Appelle Valley was created thousands of years ago by the last continental ice sheet. It runs across southern Saskatchewan, stretching as far west as Deifenbaker Lake and as far east as a few kilometers beyond the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border.

Jade Lake

Jade Lake

Location: Northern Saskatchewan

Jade Lake is one of the Gem Lakes located in Narrow Hills Provincial Park, northeast of Prince Albert. The Gem Lakes do not have a current running through them, and they are completely separate from each other. This causes the water in each lake to be perfectly clear.

Cypress Hills

Cypress Hills

Location: Southern Saskatchewan

The Cypress Hills, which were never glaciated, formed by millions of years of sedimentary deposition followed by millions of years of erosion.

Prairie
