Kyle, SK

We came across another wooden grain elevator that is still standing and in use. It's in Kyle, Saskatchewan. This hamlet has a population of around 400 residents and is situated in the southwestern part of the province. It was a sunny day when we drove through this June (2013). We stopped long enough so that I could grab a few photos. It was a relief to see that another one of these prairie icons is still standing in Saskatchewan.

Birsay, SK

We made a point of exploring some less driven roads in Saskatchewan this past June (2013) and came upon some grain elevators we hadn't seen before--like this one in Birsay. This hamlet near Lucky Lake, SK has a population of about 45 residents. It strikes me as amazing that the grain elevator still stands in this secluded section of the province. When I took this photo it was evident that the elevator was still being used. Wonderful!
