A Beautiful Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I was thinking it has been awhile since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive and looking back on my posts, I see it has been about 5 weeks. That IS a long time! But, it was a beautiful morning so that is where I went this morning.

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 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 Stroll around Fort Whyte Alive

Spring means baby critters and a walk around Fort Whyte Alive seemed to be a good idea. Although I heard there were some Goslings there, I was unable to find them (this time). I did find critters and some large babies though. We are having beautiful weather now and I will be outside as much… Continue reading A Stroll around Fort Whyte Alive

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

A Springtime walk around Fort Whyte Alive

This morning I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive for my walk. I phoned ahead to find out if the paths were still icy and they advised me that some spots were, but much has melted. I decided to put my spikes on just to be careful. It turned out that the spikes… Continue reading A Springtime walk around Fort Whyte Alive

Fort Whyte Alive on a Beautiful Sunny Day

After yesterday’s dismal looking sun, I wasn’t going to waste today’s beautiful sun, so I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk. The temperature was a lovely -7C. This is the sun we normally see a lot of in Sunny Manitoba. The Chickadees were not very co-operative today, but I managed a couple… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive on a Beautiful Sunny Day

Fort Whyte Alive with an Ooops

Fort Whyte Alive has re-opened. The outside is open, but we can’t go inside the building where the regular entrance is. The entrance has been moved to a side gate right at the start of the trails. I was quickly signed in and was on my way. Under a dull and cloudy sky, I took… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive with an Ooops

A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

It was 2C this morning when I headed over to Fort White Alive after my breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant. It started off cloudy, but after awhile, I saw the sun trying to get out from behind the clouds and soon afterwards, the clouds pretty much disappeared. 🙂 After the sun made an appearance,… Continue reading A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive
