Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Part 3

After leaving the Bison enclosure, we took a different road back, heading into Onanole so I could gas up my car, instead of taking the drive back through the park.  The only gas stations open this time of year are either south of the park at Onanole or north of the park in Dauphin.  The… Continue reading Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Part 3

It’s Melting

Back to Some Critters

I have been very lax at keeping up with the critters in the neighbourhood.  For some reason, I often even forget my camera when Chester and I head out for our walks- so I don’t have many pictures – but I do have a few. I haven’t had time to figure out the bird that… Continue reading Back to Some Critters
