A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 5

After my little mid-day break, I headed back out to see what I could find. Instead of going back into the park, I went south a bit after getting some information on lakes with a nice variety of birds along a road nearby. My first photo wasn’t a bird though. As I rounded a corner,… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 5

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 4

I had a good (but short) sleep last night and was up before dawn the next morning. I haven’t been to Grayling Lake for a sunrise photo in quite awhile, so that is where I decided to go. I then headed further north in the hopes of finding Moose around Moon Lake. First was a… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 4

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

After leaving the Black Bear with hidden cubs, I returned to the Bison enclosure to head back to the highway. Of course, I took more photos of the Bison and when I saw a couple of Pelicans flying above, I took a photo of them too. On the drive back to the highway, I stopped… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 2

After leaving Wasagaming, I headed north towards the Wishing Well. There is (of course) a well to collect coins as you make your wish, but I go to take photos of the birds in the water and was hoping to find some fish in the little stream that runs through it. In the summer and… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 2

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 1

Although I am lucky enough to have several places in or near the city where I can roam freely and take photos, I always love to go a bit further away where I can completely immerse myself in nature. I also get to see more variety and sizes of wildlife when I head up to… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 1

Day 2 – part 4 at RMNP

Now it was time to head back north towards and then past Moon Lake. Around this time the critters often start to move. I had to stop in at Moon Lake to see if any water had opened up there yet and since I have seen both Bears and Moose in and around the parking… Continue reading Day 2 – part 4 at RMNP

Back to RMNP – part 5

On my way towards the Bison enclosure I found – not 1, but 2 Coyotes. The first one was very shy and my only photo of him or her was behind the bushes. The second one ha no problem posing for photos. I took several, but will only show a couple of them. They were… Continue reading Back to RMNP – part 5

Finally – Back to RMNP – part 3

My next stop is one of my favourite sunrise locations. Grayling Lake. It is quite a small lake surrounded by evergreens. Next stop was Moon Lake where there was lots of ice remaining From Moon Lake, I continued north. Just north of Moon Lake is prime Moose viewing at times. Not this time though. I… Continue reading Finally – Back to RMNP – part 3

Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

It has been over a month since my last slippery visit to the trails at Bird’s Hill Provincial Park. The trails weren’t very good with a lot of ice then, but they are much better now. Some spots are very wet and muddy though and some of the recent snow is still evident, but I… Continue reading Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

A Short Stroll before Vaccine Time

My COVID vaccine appointment is for the afternoon today, but I still need some time to walk (instead of sitting around on the computer at home) – so I went to Assiniboine Park to check out the English Garden and to see if I can find the Pileated Woodpecker again. No luck on finding the… Continue reading A Short Stroll before Vaccine Time
