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.

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

Spending Some Time with Cats

I’d like to introduce you to 3 cats who were in need of someone to spend time with them while their owners were away this week. Of course, I arrived with my camera and managed a few photos. Here are Spencer, Dave and Rodney! Spencer spends almost all of his day (& night) in the… Continue reading Spending Some Time with Cats

Taking Advantage of an Unusually Mild November Day

Occasionally we have some above 0C temperatures in November, but usually by now, the days are mostly below 0C. So, with a predicted high of plus 9, I knew I would be out walking a trail or 2 in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park. The next 2 days are predicted to be even a little bit… Continue reading Taking Advantage of an Unusually Mild November Day

Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Autumn has arrived with quite a drop in temperature. We were lucky enough to have warm weather well into October, but reality is back with cloudy & cool days. I decided that a short drive to Fort Whyte Alive would give me a good walk and maybe some photo opportunities. Since the last photo was… Continue reading Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Chickadee Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park

I always seem to keep repeating the same trails every time I go to Birds Hill Provincial Park, but this morning I decided in advance that it is time I tried the Chickadee Trail. I was at the entrance to the trail a few years ago when a good friend (Judy) brought me out there… Continue reading Chickadee Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park
