Yeah, we hear it all the time, “Manitoba is so flat.” You know what else is flat? The thinking that there’s not much to see in a land where you can actually see forever. And most locals will tell you one of the best places to look when you’re here is UP. We don’t just do sweet sunrises and stunning sunsets, we bring a whole lotta intensity in between. Big fluffy clouds or big nasty clouds, hot sun rays or cold sun dogs, booming thunder or cracking lightning, northern lights or OMG NORTHERN LIGHTS!!! We have all the sky fun here.
Plus, it doesn’t matter if you are in the wide-open prairies, the heart of downtown Winnipeg, or the rugged tundra, Manitoba’s skies are clean and clear. There aren’t many places left in the world that can brag about that. So take a deep breath and get ready to be amazed…
We start at the dawn, a blasting good one.
Where our land comes to colourful life under a golden sun.
Vibrant skies are an everyday thing here.
From stark days on the tundra.
To lush nights on the water.
From starry nights on the plains.
To bright sun dogs over frozen land.
We don’t do boring.
We’re full of big fluffy clouds of happiness.
And vivid clouds full of brilliant energy.
Until those dark ones roll in.
And kinda start to scare the crap out of us.
Like, mesmerize and terrify at the same time.
And makes us seek shelter. Pronto.
Because it’s always better when the storm is over there.
When the crazy passes, we bust out the rainbows.
Our lakes sparkle under the big blue sky.
While also being a colourful kaleidoscope of infinite reflection.
Once the day begins to dim.
Our dreamy sunsets will make you sigh.
And enjoy the last gasps of the day.
And what a gasp it will be.
Then it’s time to cuddle up and get ready for the late show.
Because even our night skies will enchant you.
With a broad spectrum of colours that will move you.
We’ve truly got the whole darn sky package.
So, thumbs up and keep looking up!
