Winter Bales of The QU'APPELLE VALLEY Saskatchewan by

Qu’appelle Valley off Highway # ll west, Saskatchewan Canada

A short drive on a Grey winter afternoon produced this capture for me.

Here’s the Valley’s Legend.

Valley of Legend

by Dave Yanko

QU’APPELLE VALLEY – Legend tells of a young Indian brave canoeing home from a hunting trip one evening when he thought he heard someone calling his name. “Who calls?”, he asked aloud.
A postcard illustration of a part of the old Hudson Bay Post
Stations of the Cross and Chapel, at Lebret.
There was no reply. “Qu’appelle?” he tried again, this time in French. Then came a reply from the hills on the other side of the placid, moonlit lake: “Qu’appelle?” It was his echo.

On his return home the following night he discovered the young maiden he was to marry died suddenly the previous evening. With her dying breath, she called out his name
