My Saskatoon Photos

My home. Saskatoon is a city in central Saskatchewan, Canada, on the South Saskatchewan River. The name Saskatoon comes from the Cree inanimate noun misâskwatômina "saskatoon berries", which refers to the sweet, violet-coloured berry that grows in the area. It is also popularly described as the "Bridge City", for its 8 river crossings. View my online gallery at saskatoon.scottprokop.com
