” The sky is ever sensed above Canada.” – Russian writer Andrei Voznesensky in 1971
Perhaps it’s because I can’t see over the horizon that my eyes are drawn upwards into the endless expanse of sky. Unlike the Rockies, the land is so flat and sparse in much of the Canadian Badlands that I can literally see forever. The sense of space is irresistible.
This part of Canada tends to have the most clear days and the most sunlit hours in all of the country. But when a storm approaches, it can be seen for miles.
