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

Finally – back to Riding Mountain National Park

Last fall, I headed for Riding Mountain, but ended up with car problems and had to be towed back to Winnipeg. My last visit before then was in June of 2020 – so I was excited to make a 2 night booking at the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast just outside the park. The weather was… Continue reading Finally – back to Riding Mountain National Park

Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Plenty of birds are arriving here in Manitoba after vacationing in the south over the winter. It is interesting to watch as they arrive here – some will stay for the summer and and some will head further north. I’ll be keeping my eye on the Bald Eagle nest, but not sure how much I’ll… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

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

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

A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek

It was a cloudy/dull morning – not a great type of day for photo taking – but I headed to Bunn’s Creek in my never-ending search for the Cardinals that are often seen there. Not seen by me – but by many others. A few months ago, I met a woman who showed me the… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek

Geese, Ducks and More

It was such a beautiful morning yesterday, so I headed back to Fort Whyte Alive to walk after the snow had melted. The wind died down, the sky was blue and the temperature was back above 0C. Actually, it was about 10C and absolutely perfect for walking. Happy Easter!
