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 3 at RMNP

After a yummy breakfast of French Toast & Bacon at the Whitehouse Bakery, I walked over to Ominnik Marsh for a short stroll. I didn’t stay at the marsh long and then headed back to Lake Katherine to check out the Loon’s Island Trail that starts there. I’ve gone a little bit into it before,… Continue reading Day 2 – part 3 at RMNP

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

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

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

A Quicker Trip to Riding Mountain than Planned – part 2

Today I’ll fill in some of the blanks from yesterday’s post – just for something different. 🙂 After I found out that the car shouldn’t be driven, I called Cindy at the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast to cancel my 2 nights. Soon after that I found out that the car wouldn’t be towed until the… Continue reading A Quicker Trip to Riding Mountain than Planned – part 2

A Quicker trip to Riding Mountain than planned

The trip started out nice & early as usual and I was in Portage la Prairie for the sunrise. All was going fine until I slowed down for a town on the highway and the car started making an annoying noise. As I past the town and sped up again, the noise disappeared. Then I… Continue reading A Quicker trip to Riding Mountain than planned

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
