Hague Ferry, Saskatchewan

The last of my six ferry crossings in one day in Saskatchewan on July 15, 2017. The Hague Ferry is a nice spot crossing the South Saskatchewan River. This was approximately eight at night. This was the last ferry I took thinking I had completed my quest to take all of the ferries in Saskatchewan. About half an hour down the highway I realized that I missed one. So at the end of the day I was eleven for twelve for Saskatchewan ferries.

The line of rock in the water is deliberately placed there. They dredge the river where the ferry crosses and place the rock to the side. It helps raise the water level for the ferry. When you cross the river on the ferry the river looks shallow. Due to the illusion it is likely deeper than it appears. Five of the six ferry operators were nice guys.
