    I had a few hours to kill before my Hudson Bay Train left for Churchill on this one glorious Indian summer day a few years ago. I spent most of that time outside walking around the historic Forks itself and across the Esplanade Riel into and into St. Boniface (French Quarter) and back.

    The Forks is a pretty place to experience history and is located at the intersection of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. For thousands of years, the Forks has been the meeting place for early First Nations peoples. Since colonization this has also been a meeting place for European fur traders, M├ętis buffalo hunters, Scottish settlers, riverboat workers, railway pioneers and thousands of immigrants.

    The nearby Forks Market has a nice observation tower that helps you put the area into a higher perspective. The Market itself is fun to walk around to browse, to nosh, and to just watch interesting people and hang out. I ended up with a nice bottle of wine for my train ride and a few souvenir gifts for friends and family at home.
