Just one week after our walk in the snow storm, the weather was finally looking warmer for the May long weekend. The past two years my long weekends have been spent hiking to Grey Owls cabin in Prince Albert National Park, but with the parks closed for now we had to change it up.
Spending more time in the city gave us the perfect opportunity to try out one of the disc golf courses in Saskatoon a few weeks ago, and we have gone quite a few times since. A set of disks is around $40-$60 and the course is free to use, making it the perfect activity for a warm evening in the city.
Fun for any skill level, I enjoyed the game even though I haven’t exactly mastered how to throw a frisbee very far… or very straight.
On Saturday we went to some off-road vehicle trails north of the city. I was nervous about driving my own quad but quickly realized that the fun outweighed the fear. We packed some watermelon, and not nearly enough water, and enjoyed the +25 celcius day.
Eventually, we made it back to the city as the sun was setting, covered in dust and dried mud, but happy as could be. I had planned on getting quite a bit of yard work done the next day, but failed to take into account just how exhausting it is to drive an ATV.
I ended up spending the following day cleaning up a bit, but mostly napping on the couch. Finally the next morning I was eager to get my planters filled with new flowers.
It was the perfect weekend of wonderful company, new adventures, and a little gardening.

I’ve tried disc golf once and had fun with my cousins in Texas. We spend so much time hiking and birding that we haven’t tried to do it on a regular basis. Nice post!
Thank you so much! It’s a nice activity if I’m not able to get out of the city but still want to be outside. Enjoy your summer of hiking and birding!

It’s getting too hot here to hike and the bugs are ridiculous. I need to move to a cooler climate! 😊
Disc golf looks like fun. I want to give it a try. And we have your dog’s doppelganger! 🙂
