Lacadena, SK

On our trip through the southern part of the province in June, 2013, we came across another Saskatchewan grain elevator that we hadn't seen before. This one is situated in the wide open prairies and seems out of place here. Apparently, this area was settled around the turn of the 20th century to farm and to ranch. There's some history online if you go here. It's a remote, tiny community. I took the usual photo of the elevator which shows it in total isolation.

It seems only fair that I also include a photo from further away to show that it is not entirely by itself and does have some life around it.
This is the nature of living in much of Saskatchewan--wide open spaces with much distance between neighbours. There is a sense of togetherness, nevertheless, as their very survival depends on helpful neighbours.
