Batoche holds an interesting bit of our local history. A dispute that cost lives. It probably could have been averted if both sides had talked. Instead a bad mix of arrogance and misunderstanding resulted in a battle.
To finish the trip we took the St. Laurent Ferry across the South Saskatchewan and the #11 highway back to Prince Albert.
