Just northeast of the city of Winnipeg are huge gravel pits known as the Garven pits. Geological formations where there is unlimited fine sand/gravel deposits. The pits also have some the clearest and bluest water in the area. Many people go swimming in the pits even though it is illegal. A very interesting combination, huge pools of clean water and what looks like gigantic beaches.

Just outside the pits are the blooming canola fields.
Meanwhile back in Winnipeg. The monsoon rains this year have almost submerged the river walks again.
Just up the riverbank from the river walk the Donald Street Bridge claimed another victim.
Lights go off if the box is too high. The driver must have been dreaming or something.
