RMNP – part 2 – May 2022

After I left Moon Lake, I headed south and turned into Lake Audy Road to see how far I could go. The Mallard Duck and the White-tailed Deer photos were taken right on #10 highway. This Mallard Duck was looking mighty handsome and the 3 White-tailed Deer kept eating while I snapped a quick photo.… Continue reading RMNP – part 2 – May 2022

My Daughter Came to Visit

Several years ago, my daughter Angela packed her bags and headed west. She hated Winnipeg (often called Winterpeg – for good reasons). It is not unusual for temperatures during the winter to get to a low of -40 (which is the same temperature in both C & F. Combined with a nasty wind much of… Continue reading My Daughter Came to Visit

Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Although there is still snow and ice in abundance here, there is also water – lots of water. Due to our high amount of snowfall this year, the melting snow and ice is now causing flooding in many parts of the province. Winnipeg (or Winterpeg, which it is often called) has almost made it through… Continue reading Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

A Couple of Days

Things have been a little crazy around here lately, but I figured it was time to post about some of the good stuff (which – of course – involves critters) as well as Assiniboine Park in the fresh snow. When I last wrote, I was staying with the adorable dogs – Teddy & Macy, and… Continue reading A Couple of Days

More Fun with Macy & Teddy

So far this is the only photo with both of them together (sort of). They are both adorable, but I haven’t seen them play together or lie down together. I have had them lie down beside me – with one on each side of me and their heads on my lap. I didn’t have the… Continue reading More Fun with Macy & Teddy

It’s Time for Macy and Teddy

Little Teddy had just been to see the vet and received some stitches, so he will be wearing this cone for a few days. I took the above photos about 24 hours before I actually started pet sitting with these 2 cuties. I had so much stuff written in my calendar that I thought I… Continue reading It’s Time for Macy and Teddy

Cedar Bog Trail after Breakfast

After eating that delicious breakfast at Pineridge Hollow, I walked back across the road to my car – to continue my morning journey. On the way back to the car, I did manage a few photos of the yard at Pineridge Hollow. Then – on to Cedar Bog Trail! When all this snow melts, the… Continue reading Cedar Bog Trail after Breakfast

A Fort Whyte Alive Morning Walk

We’ve been having some pretty chilly days lately with temperatures close to -30C and with wind chill values well into the -30’s. This morning it was a balmy -24C with the wind chills still in the -20’s, very little wind and bright sunny skies. So, I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Morning Walk

Winter Visit to the Cedar Bog Trail

It has been almost 4 months since I’ve walked the Cedar Bog Trail in Birds Hill Provincial Park. Yesterday was a beautiful day, but last night, the snow and winds returned along with dropping temperatures. I’m happy that I got my walk in when the weather was good. This trail has spots where there is… Continue reading Winter Visit to the Cedar Bog Trail

A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are having some mild temperatures (for January) this week, so I had to head out and go for another walk this morning. Assiniboine Park is close and I haven’t walked around there for awhile – so that is where I drove. After walking through the English Gardens, I decided that maybe I should eat… Continue reading A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park
