A Day at The Assiniboine Park Zoo

It wasn’t actually a whole day at the Zoo – but I had my regular volunteer shift from 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm when the zoo closes, followed by a short break before we were invited back for a preview of this year’s Zoo Lights. I took a few photos during my volunteer shift and… Continue reading A Day at The Assiniboine Park Zoo

Winter is HERE (and a Short Walk)

I checked the temperature, which was about -10C, and the sun was shining, so I decided to take a walk at Fort Whyte Alive this morning.

The next 2 days are predicted to be even a little bit… Continue reading Taking Advantage of an Unusually Mild November Day

A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are actually having amazing weather this year and now that we are into November, this certainly won’t last much longer. It was chilly when I went for my walk though. The temperature was about 1C with enough of a wind to make it feel colder. Of course, I managed a few photos on my… Continue reading A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park
