Riding Mountain National Park – final day

It is always sad to wake up to the final day of a vacation. I can never get tired of being in nature. The morning started off (amazingly enough) with a Black Bear. This bear was on a drive that I often take. It is a short uphill and winding road from the Wishing Well… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – final day

Riding Mountain National Park – June 9, continued

After checking into my beautiful deluxe room at Elkhorn Resort, I headed downstairs and outside to visit the horses at the stables. I talked to one of the employees, asking about the extra horses they had compared to other visits. She told me that they often board horses over the winter but due to COVID-19,… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – June 9, continued

Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 1, Part 2

After my lunch and then getting signed into my room at the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast, it was time to head back out to see what I could find. I headed for the Bison enclosure and on the way, I found this little Black Bear – all by him or her self. He did not… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 1, Part 2

Beautiful Winter day at Oak Hammock Marsh

Friday was a bright & sunny morning with temperatures around the 0C mark.  I couldn’t let a day like this go by without getting out and taking some pictures and since I haven’t been to Oak Hammock Marsh for awhile, that is where I headed. I got there just before noon and decided to have… Continue reading Beautiful Winter day at Oak Hammock Marsh

Assiniboine Park Zoo Visit

I am at the Assiniboine Park Zoo a lot since I have been volunteering there for the last year and a half, but my picture taking while volunteering is limited to my cell phone.  Yesterday I had some time to go there – not as a volunteer, but as a member with my camera.  It… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo Visit

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. First stop was the Wishing Well, and the sprinklers had… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 1, part 4

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

There is only 1 stream that we cross over on the road to the Bison Enclosure, and I always have to stop for a picture – just one side and I’ll get the other side on the way out. The Bison weren’t hiding at all this trip in, and were actually quite close to the… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 1, part 3

A Walk in between Rain Showers

Showers were in the forecast for all day yesterday and we had a big storm the night before, so I decided to stay in my own area to walk around.  Of course, I brought my camera and hoped that the rain would hold off until after I returned home. My first sighting was a man… Continue reading A Walk in between Rain Showers

Prairie Dogs at Fort Whyte Alive

The Prairie Dog town at Fort Whyte Alive is one area you can visit without paying admission fee.  These guys live just outside the entrance.  I often stop in my car on the way out of there to take pictures if I see any activity. They can sure be fun to watch sometimes.  I have… Continue reading Prairie Dogs at Fort Whyte Alive
