High Plains Drifter Riding and Canoeing

High Plains Drifter Riding and Canoeing
Alberta Canada
This Trip will wake the Canadian in you! Using the ultimate transportation modes of the explorers and the Native Indians, we will spend 3 days of canoeing on the beautiful Milk River followed by 4.5 days (140 km) riding across the open plains of Southern Alberta, from the Sweetgrass Hills on the Montana border to the Cypress Hills in Saskatchewan. Explore the magical coulees, badlands and sweeping vistas of the High Plains, and ride along routes that were once used by the Natives, whiskey traders, fugitive outlaws, and the North-West Mounted Police.
At historic Writing-On-Stone, you’ll find a badlands landscape that has been sacred to Native Americans for thousands of years. Much of this country has not changed since the time of the buffalo. The Prairies are excellent riding country, with unlimited opportunity for experienced riders to move at a faster pace. Riding through the Prairies is an unforgettable experience.
The Milk River meanders through the Southern Prairies, often carving deep trenches into the sandstone hills. The water runs with a steady current, punctuated by the occasional short rapid. It is relatively warm, narrow and suitable for novice paddlers (with a guide). It is the only river in Canada that flows into the Gulf of Mexico via the Missouri/Mississippi.
