The first week of our walk was an opportunity to encounter the beauty of the prairies as we walked the quiet country roads with rollings hills. Abandoned settler homes and churches from the not so distant past dotted the landscape. Despite the chilly weather weeks prior, the first days of our walk came with above seasonal temperatures. For the group of walkers, this week was an opportunity to have some fun together. It was also an opportunity to quiet ourselves with the land as we reflected on the opening stories of Muskeg Lake Cree Nation and Stoney Knoll.
