Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Spring was so slow to arrive this year and there are spots where snow still exists (just days before June). I’ve been wanting to get to RMNP for ages. Last year I was there in April, but this year the roads have been under water or washed out in many places. The park had even… Continue reading Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Starting the Day off with a Drive to Lockport

This has been a very bad spring with two blizzard/snow storms. The flooding from those storms mean that driving anywhere was taking a chance of getting very wet and/or breaking an axle on your vehicle by hitting giant potholes (many of which were hidden in large water puddles. So – I stayed home. Another storm… Continue reading Starting the Day off with a Drive to Lockport

Oak Hammock Marsh in the Snow

It has been several months since I’ve been to Oak Hammock Marsh. Yesterday I received an e-mail from them asking if I wished to renew my membership. The membership had expired a couple of years ago as during the pandemic the building had been closed. No membership is needed to walk the trails around the… Continue reading Oak Hammock Marsh in the Snow

A Morning at Lockport

I decided to head north to Lockport to see if any Pelicans were still hanging out there. It was a beautiful morning and I enjoyed the drive. When I reached Lockport, I headed for the little park where I can usually get some decent photos, but the bridge construction has pretty much blocked off the… Continue reading A Morning at Lockport

My Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It was a beautiful morning today, so I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive for my morning walk. If you click on the first photo of each group, you can scroll through larger pictures. I put a lot of photos in this one, so smaller ones are shown on this page. On the… Continue reading My Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Lakeview Trail

My last walk of the day was the Lakeview Trail – around the lakes in Birds Hill Provincial Park (the place where I was completely lost last winter). It is so much easier to walk on the paths instead of wading through hip deep snow while not knowing where the path actually was. I don’t… Continue reading Lakeview Trail

Assiniboine Park – English Gardens & Duck Pond

I decided I needed a bit more of a walk than I had voting yesterday, so decided to head over to Assiniboine Park, to walk and take photos. First stop was the English Gardens. I waited (as I avoided the sprinklers) for the Hummingbird to return, but she didn’t. So, I left and headed over… Continue reading Assiniboine Park – English Gardens & Duck Pond

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

It has been awhile since my last visit to Fort Whyte Alive, so this morning it was time to head back there. It is much quieter than during breeding season, but at this time of year that is normal. There were still plenty of photo opportunities. It was a nice morning for a walk –… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

Hanging Around at Lockport

I left Bird’s Hill Provincial Park and drove to Lockport to take a look around. I found Pelicans and Cormorants. I found out that there was construction on the Lockport Bridge and that the speed limit on the bridge was 30 km, but before going over the bridge, I went into the park on the… Continue reading Hanging Around at Lockport

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

I hadn’t been to Fort Whyte Alive for a few weeks, so today seemed like a good day to head over there. They didn’t make it easy though since one of the roads I travel on to get there was closed – so I had to take a longer route. But, I made it there… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive
