Just like my first walk after breaking my shoulder was back to the trails at Fort Whyte Alive where I fell & broke it, my first walk back in Bird’s Hill just had to be to the area where I was lost for a few hours. This time I decided to reverse the walk by… Continue reading Return to the Bird’s Hill Park Lakes & Trails
Time to move onto my last trail of the morning. This is Cedar Bog, self-guiding trail. I have walked this trail before. The first time I didn’t look at the map at the start and when I came to a part where the trail divided, I turned around and went back. The second time (after… Continue reading A Beautiful Morning in Birds Hill Provincial Park – part 3
After finishing the Prairie Winds trail, I got back in the car and continued my drive through the park. Next stop was a short one at a little overlook.

I certainly wouldn’t have believed it and I still don’t, but the Canada Geese have returned already predicting a very early spring. I still expect some major cold weather and snow storms and hope the geese will be ok. But – the critters seem to know the weather and their forecasts are often more accurate… Continue reading Spring in February?
For the last 3 months or so on Facebook, I have been posting a picture of the day – which is to continue for an entire year. One of my favourite subjects has been a little Chickadee who comes to visit and grab a bite or two from my little supply of food I have… Continue reading Feeding the Chickadees
