Prairie Winds Trail followed by Pine Ridge Hollow

After my last maintenance problem with my car, I haven’t driven on the highway since – until today. I didn’t go too far, but have been wanting to get back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park and that is where I went. It is only about 13 km on the highway. My first walk of the… Continue reading Prairie Winds Trail followed by Pine Ridge Hollow

A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

It was a chilly morning today, when I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive with my camera. The first tree I noticed has changed the leaves to yellow instead of the green they have been all summer. I guess autumn has officially arrived. I do love autumn, but it is just too close to winter.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

I’ll start with my “before leaving home” shots. My Sunflower plant still has flowers but much smaller than the first ones and just at the bottom of the plant – and a Blue Jay on the tree just off my balcony. Then I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive to see what I could find.… Continue reading Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

It has been awhile since my last visit to Fort Whyte Alive, so this morning it was time to head back there. It is much quieter than during breeding season, but at this time of year that is normal. There were still plenty of photo opportunities. It was a nice morning for a walk –… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

A Beautiful Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I was thinking it has been awhile since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive and looking back on my posts, I see it has been about 5 weeks. That IS a long time! But, it was a beautiful morning so that is where I went this morning.

A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

It was 2C this morning when I headed over to Fort White Alive after my breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant. It started off cloudy, but after awhile, I saw the sun trying to get out from behind the clouds and soon afterwards, the clouds pretty much disappeared. 🙂 After the sun made an appearance,… Continue reading A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

Morning Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

Living in the middle of a city, I have found that I need to spend time in nature as often as I can. Listening to critter sounds is what I need, instead of traffic or people yelling or sirens. I like to just stroll along casually, listening to or watching the birds and any other… Continue reading Morning Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 2

After lunch I headed back out again – going into Wasagaming with a plan on walking out on the dock at Clear Lake. I didn’t even reach the highway when I saw this doe. She was looking and calling – you can see her mouth open on the last photo. I suspect she was looking… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 2

A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)

Yesterday looked like a nice day and I had nothing in my calendar – so I headed north to Lockport to see and photograph the Pelicans around the dam on the Red River. I pulled into the park on the east side of the river when I got there and walked over to see if… Continue reading A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 2, part 1

I was up and out exploring before the sun rose hoping to catch a sunrise, but the sun had too much trouble peaking out from behind the heavy cloud cover.  After the sun rose, there was a bit of blue sky here & there, but not many sightings of the sun all day. I started… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 2, part 1
