heres a link to the snake dens. It takes about 2 hours to drive there.

what snakes love the most is when people pick them up and swing them around like a lasso. not really.

Grand Beach is only about 45 minutes from the northern Winnipeg suburbs, one hour maybe due to traffic.
Ah, then its Gimli that's 2 hours maybe. I don't know my sense of time is crap. Heck I don't even know if I'm right about the snake dens.

Gimli is about 90 kms north of the city, Grand beach is about 100 kms to the north-north-west....


Neither take 2 hours. (45 minutes is a strech to get to grand beach an hour is more realistic)
