I once lived in Manitoba during my 20's and loved the environment, the skies, and the people of the prairies. However when I lived in the province, I rarely ventured out to explore to see what the province has to offer. I found that when I cycled through, I did a similar thing, as it was one of the shortest times in any province or territory, in almost a B line from one end to the other. I do intend on revisiting, when the time is right. Manitoba is bordered by the provinces of Ontario to the east and Saskatchewan to the west, the territories of Nunavut and Northwest Territories to the north, and the US states of North Dakota and Minnesota to the south. It adjoins Hudson Bay to the northeast, and is the only prairie province with a coastline. [edit] Hydrography and terrain The province has a saltwater coastline bordering Hudson Bay and contains over 110,000 lakes,  covering approximately 15.6% or 101,593 square kilometres (39,225 sq mi) of its surface area. Manitoba's major lakes are Lake Manitoba, Lake Winnipegosis, and Lake Winnipeg, the tenth-largest freshwater lake in the world and the largest located entirely within southern Canada. Some traditional Native lands and boreal forest on the east side of Lake Winnipeg are a proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site.
