Saskatoon and Area Photos

A thread for non-construction photos shot in and around Saskatoon. Buildings, parks, roads, people, wildlife, events, festivals it all goes here!

EDIT: This thread is for anyone and everyone to post their photos. Cell phone photos are fine too!

Witch Hut eh...(searches)...it certainly does. The Witch Hut is cooler though. It's a hut in the forest (probably fun at night).

Is a Saskatoon photo thread a good idea? I'm going to add a poll for people to vote for, against...or indifferent.

Looks like Ruckus was out at Pike Lake.

I think the Saskatoon photo thread is a great idea. Looking forward to seeing more Saskatoon Killer Gophers in this thread.

WTF? That can't be much fun. I'm guessing they're just trying it out/practicing for when they decide to go coastal.

From Cranberry Flats (city lights to the north).


The other half of the sky was a light shade of blue, almost white. A heavy downpour followed (light hail) and now it's pleasant again

If I'm not mistaken #16 is the boathouse of none other than Mr. Ken Achs.

Nicer than my house.

Different skyline shot for sure. That iron bacteria is kind of nasty (especially when it's not hard-packed).

Living in that boathouse would be like an episode of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air — a little more white though.

The Roots.


Impromptu dance party in Friendship Park.

The green Saskatoon picture is AMAZING! It's exactly what everyone wants the city to be. Dense but not over bearing. Visual green power production presence. High use of green public transit. Visually pleasing architecture everywhere AND lots of trees!
