Life Goes On

Since my fall in December, I haven’t gone out much at all. I did take a return trip to Fort Whyte Alive, but otherwise, it has been only grocery shopping at the store next door to my apartment or ordering online for delivery. My FitBit bugs me to keep moving – so I walk around… Continue reading Life Goes On

Short Walk after Temperature Drop

Yesterday we had a mild December temperature of -4C and this morning it was -25C when I went out to get some groceries. I hadn’t checked the temperature before leaving my apartment, so just had my fleece on as my jacket. I had to scrape ice and snow off the car – but got my… Continue reading Short Walk after Temperature Drop

A Slippery Walk

I knew it was going to be slippery when I opened the door to go outside and saw frozen drops of rain on the stair railings. I went anyway, but didn’t end up walking enough to even look at what my FitBit said today. First photos are the intricate designs on my car’s windshield (windscreen)… Continue reading A Slippery Walk

A Different trail in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

I have almost turned into this trail other times thinking it was the Prairie Winds trail and this time I decided I would check it out. This is the Pine Ridge Trail. It was a very short walk to the Kudlowich homestead. It is the only homestead left on the trail, but it looks like… Continue reading A Different trail in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

Bunn’s Creek and Lockport

This morning I had decided to go out to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park. Then I thought I might as well drive through the city instead of taking the perimeter and I could stop at Bunn’s Creek. I did that, but didn’t stay long at Bunn’s Creek. I checked out the areas where I was told… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Lockport

Back to Bunn’s Creek

I am still trying to find the Cardinals at Bunn’s Creek and they are just never around on the days/times when I go. I still had a nice walk, talked to a few people and pet a few dogs – so the walk wasn’t a waste of time or energy. One very helpful lady who… Continue reading Back to Bunn’s Creek

Assiniboine Forest – Exploring a different area

Yesterday, I decided to check out a different area of the Assiniboine Forest. This is a large area that pretty much begins at the Assiniboine Park. The park starts at the Assiniboine River. Some areas in the park are bush and it is common to find White-tailed Deer right along with other urban wildlife. Corydon… Continue reading Assiniboine Forest – Exploring a different area

A Chickadee Morning at Birds Hill Provincial Park

It was still dark when I headed out this morning. The forecast for today was going to be above freezing and I wanted to be at Birds Hill Provincial Park shortly after the sun would be rising. It was daylight when I arrived, but the sun was hiding behind a sky full of clouds. It… Continue reading A Chickadee Morning at Birds Hill Provincial Park

A Chilly, Windy Stroll in Assiniboine Forest

The temperature was -7C, it was quite windy and a few flakes of snow were falling when I headed out for a walk. I decided on Assiniboine Forest, thinking the wind wouldn’t be too bad in the trees. It has been many, many years since I have walked here and back then it was just… Continue reading A Chilly, Windy Stroll in Assiniboine Forest

Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park

Until my last move, I have always lived east of Assiniboine Park and always entered from the east. Since I moved west of the park a couple of months ago, I found out that there is a large western side of the park with trails. I have now been entering the west side and driving… Continue reading Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park
