Lakeview Trail and Bur Oak Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park

I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go after walking the Chickadee trail, but as I approached the overlook parking lot, I turned in. It has been awhile since I stopped there. This time I actually looked at the map and realized that the lakes and marsh (where I got lost last year) are directly… Continue reading Lakeview Trail and Bur Oak Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park

A Morning Stroll along Cedar Bog Trail

It was a chilly morning (for August) when I decided to head north to Birds Hill Provincial Park where I could walk on the Cedar Bog Trail. It seems like its been awhile since I’ve been out there, but especially since I’ve walked this trail. Rain wasn’t in the forecast, but there were some very… Continue reading A Morning Stroll along Cedar Bog Trail

A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 1

The provincial parks in Manitoba closed all the trails in their parks earlier this spring due to the extreme dry weather and the possibility of fires. There were several very large and out of control fires burning in the province at that time. After we finally got a few days of rain, the trails are… Continue reading A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 1

My First trip to Beaudry Provincial Park

Until recently, I had not known about Beaudry Provincial Park. It is certainly the closest provincial park to the city, but isn’t well advertised. I had lived more in the eastern areas of Winnipeg and Beaudry is just to the west. It was a cloudy morning with a possibility of rain according to the forecast,… Continue reading My First trip to Beaudry Provincial Park

Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 3

It was a short drive from the beach parking lot to the next parking lot, so I was soon walking along the Cedar Bog trail. The snow was pretty much gone, so other than some muddy spots – walking was good. 🙂 I could hear Chickadees, but they were not showing themselves to me –… Continue reading Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 3

Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

It has been over a month since my last slippery visit to the trails at Bird’s Hill Provincial Park. The trails weren’t very good with a lot of ice then, but they are much better now. Some spots are very wet and muddy though and some of the recent snow is still evident, but I… Continue reading Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

Lost in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2

The gate to the West Beach in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park is always open – but it is a little chilly for swimming in the winter and I’ve never gone in there. Today I decided to take a look. After parking the car, I noticed that there are trails around the lakes – so I… Continue reading Lost in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2

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

A Drive through 3 Manitoba Provincial Parks in 1 Day

When I left the apartment this morning I hadn’t planned on driving through 3 Provincial Parks – but I did. When I returned home, I decided to find out how many Provincial Parks are in Manitoba – maybe I can set a higher goal for another drive. 🙂 Google search tells me there are 92… Continue reading A Drive through 3 Manitoba Provincial Parks in 1 Day

A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I had planned on heading out to either the Whiteshell Provincial Park or Grand Beach Provincial Park today, to spend some time with my feet in a lake. Unfortunately, rain was in the forecast, so I decided to hang out in Winnipeg and headed to Fort Whyte Alive. All signs of rain left and it… Continue reading A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive
