Boots and Dunes

The Great Sandhills is a natural area in southwest
Saskatchewan and is the largest set of active sand
dunes in all of Canada.  The landscape is ever
changing.

The Hanging Cowboy Boots Arch is located above the
parking area.  It was built by local rancher John Both
as a display of his appreciation and love of life.  He
understood this fragile landscape and believed in its
preservation.  Some of his ashes are spread beneath
the arch.

For more information about the sandhills natural area

Centre in Sceptre, Saskatchewan or their website here:

  1. Very neat! Love the boot arch and I still think it's odd seeing sand in Saskatchewan!
