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

Finally – Back to RMNP – part 2

I won’t be checking into the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast until after noon, so I have plenty of time to visit all my favourite stops before then. The Spruces has a beautiful sunset almost every night. The Wishing Well Road has a beautiful sunset for a limited amount of time – the sun just needs… Continue reading Finally – Back to RMNP – part 2

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

A Morning Stroll at a very busy Fort Whyte Alive

I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive a little later than I usually go. Normally I am there at opening, but it was about an hour after than when I arrived. The parking lot was almost full, so I knew there would be a lot of people in there and I thought about turning around… Continue reading A Morning Stroll at a very busy Fort Whyte Alive

Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

This morning I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive and so that is what I did and arrived a few minutes after they opened at 9:00 am. I stopped on the road as I was driving in to get a photo of some of the Canada Geese and Sea Gulls at the edge… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

Wandering Around

This morning I decided to take a return drive to Lockport to see how the river looked there, as well as seeing what birds and/or critters I could find. Of course, I always like watching the water flowing through the locks as well. I headed back to the car and started driving – ending up… Continue reading Wandering Around

A Springtime walk around Fort Whyte Alive

This morning I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive for my walk. I phoned ahead to find out if the paths were still icy and they advised me that some spots were, but much has melted. I decided to put my spikes on just to be careful. It turned out that the spikes… Continue reading A Springtime walk around Fort Whyte Alive

Last Stop Today – Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

My car ended up taking me east again and when we reached Highway 59, we turned south to head back in the direction of home. But, when we got to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park we turned in there. I hadn’t been to the Cedar Bog trail since my “lost in Bird’s Hill Park day”, so… Continue reading Last Stop Today – Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

Towards Selkirk and North

I was kind of deciding to go west a bit, but once we were approaching Selkirk, we ended up going through and continuing north on the same road. It has been many years since I’ve been in Selkirk and it looks nothing like it did way back then. Just before Selkirk, I stopped to take… Continue reading Towards Selkirk and North

Walking around at Lockport

There was absolutely nothing written in my calendar for today – so I decided to head out to Lockport to look for birds and see how the ice on the river was there. There was actually more ice than I thought there would be – closer to the locks as well. Then I noticed a… Continue reading Walking around at Lockport
