Sometimes I forget how beautiful and scenic Winnipeg can be. For having a really harsh cold season, things really get green in the summer.
Winnipeg is a city covered in trees. One of the first things you notice when you fly over is the harmony of green scape and concrete. Ancient Elms and Oak trees line the banks of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.
Of course the consequences of having all those snaking rivers means a lot of bridges. For much of the season tour boats like the River Rouge are cut off from some of the best tour areas due to high water levels or flooding.
I wonder if any of the passengers checked for the life vest before passing under the South Osbourne Bridge?
Will they make it?
Phew! Just barely.
Everyone in Winnipeg should take a boat down our beautiful rivers. I think the brown murkiness and current can turn a lot of people away, but the two rivers of Winnipeg make for a world class landscape which is something we residents take for granted living in our boxes for the better part of the year.
