We were still in the Bison Enclosure and had just left the White-tail Deer in the last post, and I was continuing along on the one way road towards the exit. This road has lots of curves, especially once you get into the bush and it is quite a narrow road (which is why it is one way). Just ahead of me, I saw some Bison. I was surprised, because I always take this road and had never seen any Bison once I get into the bush part of it – but there they were. They were just waking up and moving very slowly.
I always drive slowly through here anyway, so I didn’t have a problem with them moving slowly – but they weren’t anxious to even move at all and pretty much stood there without moving. So – I stopped and began snapping pictures through the windshield. I don’t get the best pictures through the windshield, but it was either this way or no pictures.
As I have been driving along the gravel roads, I often see Flickers fly away and I always slow down or stop to see where they land and if I can get a picture. Until now, they had avoided my photography, but this one perched in a perfect spot for me to snap a couple of pictures. They turned out almost identical, so I’ll just show you this one of a Northern Flicker.
I found a couple of Loons on the Wishing Well Road and managed some pictures.
The trees along the lake are getting fall colours.
Then I headed for #19 and found more colours along the road.
I pulled into Katherine Lake and found some wild horses (well, maybe not wild), but horses anyway. Apparently the riders are Don, Don and Jan. They allowed me to take a picture and then they were on their way.
I noticed a trail at the other end of the parking lot and decided to take a little stroll. This was actually longer than I would walk on my own and especially starting in the afternoon, so I just walked in a bit and then walked back out. It looks like a nice trail though.
Then it was into Wasagaming for a walk along the shore and onto the dock.
I decided to head back to the B&B earlier than usual, since the clouds were too thick to aim for sunset tonight.
