A Winter Visit to Beaudry Provincial Park

My first visit to Beaudry Provincial Park was early spring last year. Before then I hadn’t even known about it. I returned a couple of times during the summer, but only wrote the one post on my first visit. This morning I decided to do a winter walk there. I didn’t see or hear any… Continue reading A Winter Visit to Beaudry Provincial Park

Return to Bunn’s Creek

I haven’t been to Bunn’s Creek for over 2 months by the looks of things, so yesterday morning when I saw a break in the cold weather, I decided to head over there for a walk. I was actually amazed when I saw the temperature – it was a very mild -8C and there was… Continue reading Return to Bunn’s Creek

A Drive Through Assiniboine Park

The Assiniboine Park Zoo is currently closed for a few days so they can do some maintenance and deep cleaning of areas that they must do when the public is not around. They always accomplish a lot during these 5 days, but I probably would have walked around the zoo instead of just driving through… Continue reading A Drive Through Assiniboine Park

A Sunny Cold Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It has been about a month and a half since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive. Although it was a chilly morning with a temperature of -28C and a windchill in the -30’s I decided it was time to head over there. I didn’t stay long though. I only walked the smaller side where the… Continue reading A Sunny Cold Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

A Short Walk on a Foggy Morning

I had a couple of things on my mind when I headed out this morning. So far I have not found the Cardinals in the English Garden or Leo Mol Sculpture Garden at Assiniboine Park plus I really needed a new pair of shoes. First was a quick stop at Starbucks to get a Chai… Continue reading A Short Walk on a Foggy Morning

A Sunny Morning with a Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It was a beautiful sunny morning with temperatures around -13C (and not much wind) when I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk. I signed in with my membership card and as I headed out the door, I saw a sign that said paths were very slippery and to use caution. Although it… Continue reading A Sunny Morning with a Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

A Day at The Assiniboine Park Zoo

It wasn’t actually a whole day at the Zoo – but I had my regular volunteer shift from 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm when the zoo closes, followed by a short break before we were invited back for a preview of this year’s Zoo Lights. I took a few photos during my volunteer shift and… Continue reading A Day at The Assiniboine Park Zoo

Spending Some Time with Cats

I’d like to introduce you to 3 cats who were in need of someone to spend time with them while their owners were away this week. Of course, I arrived with my camera and managed a few photos. Here are Spencer, Dave and Rodney! Spencer spends almost all of his day (& night) in the… Continue reading Spending Some Time with Cats

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
