Scattered across a 1900 square kilometre area, some of the Great Sand Hills rise 15-20 metres above the surrounding rugged landscape. A truly unique place to visit, this area is home to large active sand dunes that are constantly being reshaped and moved due to the wind.
A completely different landscape than the farmed prairie, here you can find cacti, creeping juniper, and sagebrush among native prairie grasses and bushes like rose and Saskatoon.
This is a truly unique and interesting area to visit! Take off your shoes and have a blast in the smooth, fine sand.
Of course, find the virtual geocache while you’re at it!
