Hat to the Park Virtual Trip

Hey Marston report 37 1477kms

What a difference a few miles make. The landscape is changing from a flat horizon to hills and lakes and trees, trees, trees.I was beginning to feel tree deprived.. I just passed Warman another town born of railway parents in the early 1900's. As a matter of fact, the two railway lines formed a diamond shape so at first the town was called " Diamond" but a journalist who followed and recorded the construction of the C.N.R., old " Sly Cy, " had the Hamlet called after him. Unfortunately no sooner had they declared themselves a town when fire struck the businesses on main street. This forced the people to move else where and the population dropped to 148 people by 1927.

It wasn't until the late 1950's until it began to grow again and now Warman boasts a population of over 5000.

As I mentioned the big attraction is the landscape with the hunting and great fishing in the many lakes around here. So guys, eat your heart out. Look at the size of those trophies ! Lots of outfitters too, check out

Maybe I don't have a snow ball's chance of catching that moose for supper ( probably the other way around) but with a little luck I could have a pike, or even a trout See ya later
