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 4

I had a good (but short) sleep last night and was up before dawn the next morning. I haven’t been to Grayling Lake for a sunrise photo in quite awhile, so that is where I decided to go. I then headed further north in the hopes of finding Moose around Moon Lake. First was a… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 4

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 1

Although I am lucky enough to have several places in or near the city where I can roam freely and take photos, I always love to go a bit further away where I can completely immerse myself in nature. I also get to see more variety and sizes of wildlife when I head up to… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 1

Day 2 – part 4 at RMNP

Now it was time to head back north towards and then past Moon Lake. Around this time the critters often start to move. I had to stop in at Moon Lake to see if any water had opened up there yet and since I have seen both Bears and Moose in and around the parking… Continue reading Day 2 – part 4 at RMNP

Day 3 at Riding Mountain National Park

Today I will be heading home and I was awake and out before sunrise. It was early enough that I thought I’d be able to get better sunrise photos at Whirlpool Lake than I did yesterday. I got a sneak peak from the road before the turnoff to the lake. Once I was at the… Continue reading Day 3 at Riding Mountain National Park

Day 2 – part 2 at RMNP

After leaving the beaver, I returned to the highway and drove north, to check in at my usual spots (Grayling Lake & Moon Lake) as I looked for Bears and Moose along the way. I continued north of Moon Lake for awhile before turning back and heading south. Next stop was the Boreal Trail. This… Continue reading Day 2 – part 2 at RMNP

Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

I had decided I wasn’t going to set an alarm to get up and get out for the sunrises this trip – but amazingly enough, I work up early anyway. So – I headed out while it was still dark. I was greeted by the beautiful moon as soon as I went outside. It was… Continue reading Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

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

Finally – Back to RMNP – part 4

It was now mid-afternoon, so some of the critters might start moving before too long. I had not yet driven one of my favourite roads – #19, so that is where I started off. First stop was Lake Katherine, but all I could find there were a pair of Buffleheads – so I took their… Continue reading Finally – Back to RMNP – part 4
