My "Bucket List" of things to do before I leave this earthly paradise seems to get longer each year. As a travel junkie, I'm constantly on the look-out for new destinations and lately I've been adding more and more Canadian destinations to my list. It's my dream one day to spend a night in the Ice House in Quebec City during Carnaval de Quebec, and I've long dreamt about dog-sledding in Algonquin Park in the thick of winter. Now I've added about a dozen Saskatchewan sites to my bucket list thanks to an amazing travel book that has garnered a slew of awards.

Grant Black's "Saskatchewan Book of Musts: The 101 Places Every Saskatchewanian MUST Visit" has changed that perception. His book is packed with interesting destinations and attractions. How about these?
- Great Ow's cabin in Prince Albert National Park
- Athabasca's Sand Dunes Provincial Park
- Big Muddy Badlands - the glacier-tilled ranch lands which American outlaws from Montana used as a base to rob banks and trains in the 1800s.
