Everybody should take a rural ferry

Especially in a place like this. I cannot state just how beautiful this spot was. Wonderful view as I descended down the road to wait for the ferry. I just wish I could have captured the scenery here a bit better. The Weldon Ferry crosses the South Saskatchewan River. It took a bit of driving down rural gravels to get here. Of course when I did cross over the side turned out to be paved. 

There is not a lot anchoring a ferry.

Gorgeous spot. I loved it except for the bugs. Saskatchewan has lots of nasty plus size insects. While talking to the ferry operator I was bitten by horseflies. After my trip my car was plastered with insect remains.
