Hi fellow Peakbaggers (hey – we all have mountains we need to climb, right?),
Below you will find all information relating to Saskatchewan’s Highest Point – an unnamed coordinate south west of Fort Walsh NHSC and south of Cypress Hills West Block.
We will be meeting at this summit before sunrise on Thursday August 13, 2015 and we want you te join us! Come out at 5:30am, BYOB (bring your own breakfast!) and watch the sunrise over Saskatchewan! Click here for details.
If you can’t make it, you can follow along on how the journey went, below. We will be updating this page with our progress including photos, GPS maps and files, reflections, and soon enough our webisode. How’s the journey going? Subscribe to our newsletter and YouTube channel to find out.
Talk to you soon,
Saskatchewan’s highest peak is located southwest of Fort Walsh National Historic Site – birthplace of birthplace of the NWMP/RCMP – and just south of Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park – Canada’s only inter-provincial park. While the peak is approachable by vehicle, we’d love to bask in the sunrise over coffee and then explore the surrounding area on foot.
