Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 1

Although it was very cloudy again this morning, I was up and out of the B&B first thing in the morning and headed to Grayling Lake in the hopes the clouds would clear enough for morning sunrise pictures.  It was foggy and I remembered getting some beautiful foggy sunrise pictures there a couple of years… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 1

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 1, part 4

After exiting the Bison enclosure, I headed to the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast to get checked in.  I had a tour of the place, got the pictures all loaded onto my laptop to clear the camera card and relaxed a bit before heading back out.

After leaving the Bison enclosure, we took a different road back, heading into Onanole so I could gas up my car, instead of taking the drive back through the park.  The only gas stations open this time of year are either south of the park at Onanole or north of the park in Dauphin.  The… Continue reading Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Part 3
