Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 3, Viola Desmond

Viola Desmond is one of the Canadian human rights stories in the museum.  I didn’t take many pictures of her small exhibit, but when I go back again soon I will look to see if there is more.  I do have links to websites with more information that I will add though. Most of us… Continue reading Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 3, Viola Desmond

June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 1

This trip was planned because of all the bear and bear cub sightings that had been posted on the Facebook page for RMNP lately.   Unfortunately, my usual entrance and exit to and from the park is always on Highway #19, but the spring weather had deteriorated the road badly and it was closed.  I had… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 1

Day 2 continued – Riding Mountain National Park Oct 17
