Sesekinika is a small line of about a dozen houses and cottages on road 570, five minutes east of Highway 11. I would call it a hamlet, but it’s probably more of a cottage or camp area.
Sesekinika Resort offers some lake-front accommodation and activities just south of town on Highway 11. Sesekinika was also home to Circle Square Ranch of 1980’s mid-morning Canadian children’s television fame (I see now that there are multiple Circle Square ranches in Canada, which makes its location in Sesekinika a lot less cool than I originally thought) but according to a comment below, the ranch has since closed.
Similar to Sapawe in the far northwest, Sesekinika is the official divide between the Atlantic and Arctic watersheds (Sesekinika falls into the former.)
I drove as far as the road was paved and then promptly turned around. Just as I finished my u-turn I found a massive Dodge Durango staring me down through my rear view mirror. My heart started beating. I briefly wondered if I was about to be run out of town for snooping around with a digital camera…and then…the couple in the car…waved and smiled.
I guess I gotta get out of the city. 😉
