Qu'appelle Valley, Saskatchewan, Canada 09

Description : QU,APPELLE VALLEY - Legend tells of a young Indian brave canoeing home from a hunting trip one evening when he thought he heard someone calling his name. Who calls?, he asked aloud. There was no reply. Qu,appelle? he tried again, this time in French. Then came a reply from the hills on the other side of the placid, moonlit lake: Qu,appelle? It was his echo.
Today, this area (map) is one of southern Saskatchewan,s most popular playgrounds. Katepwa, Mission, Echo and Pasqua are known as The Calling Lakes (they used to be known as The Fishing Lakes until someone realized there was a perfectly good legend going to waste). Fed by the meandering Qu,Appelle River and aquifers beneath them, the quartet of lakes makes this an exceptionally pretty section of the valley.
