Astral Travel & Trompe-l'oeil in Saskatchewan

from Alex Emond, our man in south Saskatchewan:

     "...from south of Hazlet, Sask., in the sandhill country just northwest of Swift Current. Gorgeous, subtle, soft terrain that I want to explore a little more. Way too much oil and gas shit going on so it may take another half century before all that stuff is gone. But there are still expansive views that turn driving into a sort of lazy man's Astral Travel. I mean miles and miles of no fence, no traffic, floating on gravel. Probably most seductive on a big motorcycle...
