A Couple of Hours at Fort Whyte Alive – part 2

Trips to Fort Whyte Alive are always nice.  It is on the outskirts of Winnipeg, but you feel immersed right in nature.  There are lakes, ponds or puddles, pastures, bush, a treehouse, bird feeding stations and a lot of birds and other critters.  It is a great place to just get away without actually leaving… Continue reading A Couple of Hours at Fort Whyte Alive – part 2

June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 6

After leaving the Pelicans and Ducks, I continued along the gravel road towards the Bison Enclosure.  It is a fairly long drive, so I just sit back and enjoy it. On the way in, I completely missed photo opportunities for 2 Black Bears, that dashed into the bush before I could get my camera ready… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 6

I arrived at the Lake Audy Road without incident (or sightings), but… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 1

This trip was planned because of all the bear and bear cub sightings that had been posted on the Facebook page for RMNP lately.   Unfortunately, my usual entrance and exit to and from the park is always on Highway #19, but the spring weather had deteriorated the road badly and it was closed.  I had… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 1

Return to Narcisse

I waited for a week after my first visit to Narcisse and since we have had several quite warm days in a row, I decided to head back out there in the hopes that many more snakes would be active.  Rain was forecast for today, but you never know if it actually will rain or… Continue reading Return to Narcisse
