This past June we made a point of traveling through part of southern Saskatchewan. Any grain elevators we saw along the way meant stopping to take their photos. The town of Coronach is probably the furthest south we got as this town is only 10 kms north of the Canada/US border. The link I've included tells how this small town almost died out but was rejuvenated when the Poplar River Power Project began nearby in 1974. The countryside is wide open and prone to high winds and dry, hot weather. I'm glad I didn't have to farm there, but I admire those that settled there and those that are still there. There are two elevators in Coronach and they look like they're still in use. Just like the "old days".
