A Few Ducks and a Bit More

Taking advantage of this beautiful weather, I headed over to the Great Blue Heron Reserve for a walk yesterday. There are still plenty of ducks and geese around. I wasn’t aware that they had bird feeders out for the smaller birds, but now I know about this photo opportunity. I didn’t go to the bird… Continue reading A Few Ducks and a Bit More

A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

Yesterday I had a couple of stops to make before heading out for my walk. So – when it was time to head over to the trail, I wasn’t sure how to get there from my current location. My handy-dandy map app was asked to direct me and I ended up in a new (to… Continue reading A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

A Walk in Nature

Of course, where would I walk other than somewhere in nature. This walk was in the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve. I covered a couple of trails that I hadn’t been on before, but I’m still not comfortable enough to veer off a path in case I get lost. On the way home I bought… Continue reading A Walk in Nature

What’s the Chance that I Might Find another Great Blue Heron at the Reserve

I know the Great Blue Herons leave the reserve once the young ones are independent, but since there was one young one still hanging out there when I went a couple of weeks ago, maybe I’ll find another one. I still have several trails through there to explore anyway. I did find a bird that… Continue reading What’s the Chance that I Might Find another Great Blue Heron at the Reserve

The Lakes & Beaches at Birds Hill Provincial Park

Last year, I set out on this walk in February and I got myself lost. The trails were buried in snow and it was my first time walking this trail. After quite a bit of time (no idea of actual time), I ran into some people, who steered me in the right direction. This walk… Continue reading The Lakes & Beaches at Birds Hill Provincial Park

Cedar Bog Trail after Breakfast

After eating that delicious breakfast at Pineridge Hollow, I walked back across the road to my car – to continue my morning journey. On the way back to the car, I did manage a few photos of the yard at Pineridge Hollow. Then – on to Cedar Bog Trail! When all this snow melts, the… Continue reading Cedar Bog Trail after Breakfast

Finally – back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

It has been a nasty winter here in Winterpeg this year. Much more snow than normal and extreme cold for much of the winter. This morning was quite pleasant starting at -12C this morning when I headed out and rising to -8C by early afternoon. I’ve been wanting to get back out to Bird’s Hill… Continue reading Finally – back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

A Fort Whyte Alive Morning Walk

We’ve been having some pretty chilly days lately with temperatures close to -30C and with wind chill values well into the -30’s. This morning it was a balmy -24C with the wind chills still in the -20’s, very little wind and bright sunny skies. So, I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Morning Walk

Winter Visit to the Cedar Bog Trail

It has been almost 4 months since I’ve walked the Cedar Bog Trail in Birds Hill Provincial Park. Yesterday was a beautiful day, but last night, the snow and winds returned along with dropping temperatures. I’m happy that I got my walk in when the weather was good. This trail has spots where there is… Continue reading Winter Visit to the Cedar Bog Trail

A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are having some mild temperatures (for January) this week, so I had to head out and go for another walk this morning. Assiniboine Park is close and I haven’t walked around there for awhile – so that is where I drove. After walking through the English Gardens, I decided that maybe I should eat… Continue reading A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park
