Southwest Saskatchewan: Eastend & Maple Creek

T.rex Discovery Centre

The T.rex Discovery Centre in Eastend. This building houses a museum and research centre all dedicated to dinorsaurs. The most famous Saskatchewan dinosaur is "Scotty" the T.rex. Scotty is one of the most compete T.rex skeletons ever found. However, there are all sorts of other fossils on display here as well.

I had to! There are several different T.rex fossilized skulls on display so that visitors can get an idea of just how huge these animals were. There are also life-sized murals on the walls, so standing next to them, like I did, really puts their size into perspective.

 

The Old Man on His Back Visitor Centre, located about 60km southwest of Eastend. The Centre is full of information about this area, spanning many, many years, from the First Nations people, to the European settlers, to its current day operations with plains bison.

 

The natural prairie surrounding the Old Man on His Back Visitor Centre has been preserved, and a conservation herd of plains bison roam the 5,300 hectares freely. I was lucky to get to see them while I was there.

 

My beautiful room at the newly renovated and recently opened Redmond House Bed & Breakfast and Dining Establishment in Maple Creek. Owner/operator/chef, Michael Morrow, has done an amazing job of refurbishing this amazing buidling into a bed and breakfast and restaurant. The other rooms are just as lovely, each with its own character and feel.

Michael is a trained chef so if you visit Redmond House for a meal you're in for a real treat. He prepares everything from scratch, which results in some amazing dishes. For dinner I had the Baked Portabella Mushroom, the Filet of Halibut with Chiroz, and keylime pie for dessert...so good! And, how cute it this?!
