Also much of that area in the picture is in the park, I honestly do not know what has caused those shapes...

Reposting Calgarian's image so it's on the most recent page:



As for some analysis, and maybe Calgarian can tell me if I'm in the wrong direction, but those almost look like some sort of dunes, except for the vegetation. That might explain the white blotches though.

Are those the Great Sand Hills in Southern Saskatchewan?

You got it!

Really cool place, definitely recommend visiting. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere though.

Damnit! I was busy reading other threads before responding to this one.

Neat place, a bit overstated in its "coolness" factor perhaps but certainly worth a drive and walk through if anyone ever drives across the prairies. The Spirit Sands in Manitoba are also pretty swell.

It's a bunch of giant sand dunes in the middle of the bald prairie, so it's neat, but will never be a huge tourist destination or anything. If you go in the middle of the summer it gets ridiculously hot too!

So, I'm looking for name of the building in the first photo. To give you a hand, the second photo is a smaller scale photo of the same location. Just to help you narrow down the search a bit, I'll let you know that it's not in Ontario. You're welcome!

That very prominent peak in the bottom left kind of looks like Mt Assiniboine, though that doesn't look like Mt Assiniboine lodge.

Not Mt. Assiniboine Lodge; not Mt. Assiniboine.

I'm stumped then. My second guess was going to be Abbot Pass hut, but I think it's a lot higher than the building you show.

Not the Abbot Pass Hut and not quite as high in elevation. You're on the right track though.

Is that the Six Glaciers Teahouse? if not, I'm out of guesses.

You were more on track with the second guess.

One last guess based on that then, Is it the Elizabeth Parker Hut?
