Nestled in the valley of the Cypress Hills is one of the first Northwest Mounted Police outposts - Fort Walsh

Did you think that Saskatchewan is flat - not true. High hills hid rum-runners and gun-slingers at Fort Walsh National Historic Site of Canada. Hike out into the Cypress Hills.

This is Fort Walsh. It is close to Cypress Hills and Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. Husband's relation was a North West Mounted Policeman here.
