The QuAppelle Valley
The Qu'Appelle Valley
The beautiful Qu'Appelle Valley was formed by the waters of Glacial Lake Regina and the South Saskatchewan River which cut into the deposits left by the glacier to form the valley.
Glacial Lake Regina was formed along a part of the front of a glacier which covered much of the northern portion of the North American continent about 11,000 years ago. Meltwaters from the front of the glacier and from the South Saskatchewan River filled the glacial lake basis.
when the front of the glacier retreated, North of the present Qu'Appelle Valley, Glacial Lake Regina expanded until it began to drain through the Qu'Appelle drainage outlet.
The water of Glacial Lake Regina and the South Saskatchewan River then formed the Qu'Appelle Valley.
