Flora Bora Yurts (Emma Lake, Saskatchewan) – The beams of the yurt reach high up above us, and the corked floor extends in every direction below us, welcoming us into what is a solitude I have not yet found in any motel or hotel, no matter how private or gourmet the room.

Peace is in the pores of this yurt, it’s built into its canvass housing in the round, its rising poles in symmetry and its view of towering pines – concentric around us. The coolness gives us reason to bundle up and pull the heavy comforters up to our chins as we peer out of the sky light above and listen to the peace of the forest outside of our door. Joy!
