Indigenous Indians believe that Spotted Lake was created with the help of forces from above, as it has healing properties that can heal both physical and spiritual ailments. The surface of the lake becomes scattered in a chaotic manner multi-colored puddles (“spots”), when in summer the water evaporates. The water in the pits can be blue, white, yellow or green. It all depends on the minerals that are at the bottom. The surface between the puddles is magnesium sulfate, which hardens, creating a solid base on which to walk. How to get there: The lake is protected from visitors by a fence, but you can still admire it from highway 3, which passes about 9 kilometers west of Osuios.
What will you do with the embalmed liquid bottles after you stop the funeral business? Someone David Brown was engaged in collecting such bottles and once, having traveled around Canada in search of such vessels, he collected so much that it was enough to build the house of his dream. Here we are talking about half a million bottles (about 250 tons of glass)! Unfortunately, the house, built in 1952, became such a popular attraction that Brown had to move to another place Butch Sassidy chose a place called “The Big Muddy Badlands” as the first point of his route in the film Outlaw Trail, which began in Saskatchewan and ended in Mexico. From the late 1890s to the early 20th century, American criminals used Castle-Butt’s 70-meter ledge as a convenient point of view, while they themselves hid the loot and their horses in Big Muddy caves. There are even guided tours of places that once used criminals. Getting there: Big Muddy and Castle Butt are located 175 kilometers south-west of Regina, near the city of Coronac (which, in turn, is located 10 kilometers from the border with Montana).
It is easy to imagine a headless horseman from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, galloping past these eerie aspens. Their grasping branches create an intimidating atmosphere that makes those who visit this place feel unwell. Scientists say the trees have been mutated, but the reasons are unknown to them. Other aspen around ok. What was the cause? Meteorite crash? Radioactive effect? Alien tricks? Nobody knows. In the end, not far from here there are places where, according to information, they have seen a UFO. The word “pingualuit” means acne. A rather strange choice of a name for a lake that looks like a huge gem. There is an opinion that it contains the purest fresh water on the planet. The jagged edges of the lake were formed due to the fall of the meteorite, which occurred more than 1.3 million years ago. The lake is located in the Pingualuit Provincial Park nature reserve, a popular spot for summer and winter camping. The terrain, of course, is quite remote, but even here there are comfortable beds, showers and wireless Internet. Getting there: By plane from Montreal, Ottawa or Quebec to Kuudzhuak, and then again by plane to Kangiksujuak. From there, take a helicopter or a passenger plane to the nature reserve.
