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.

  1. Sand dunes in Canada...why not? Something more to see when I get up there!

  2. Seems strange to have sand dunes in Saskatchewan. I have yet to see them!
