Catch Up

Between the move and my upcoming vacation, I haven’t been around here much lately and I apologize for that – but it will be awhile before things get back to normal (whatever that is) again. To fill you in – I have moved, although still unpacking.  Hopefully I will be finished unpacking before I leave… Continue reading Catch Up

It is Still Winter at Fort Whyte Alive

Last month Mother Nature tried to fool us into thinking we would have an early spring, but she soon brought back the winter weather.  So – winter activities have resumed as the ice has frozen on the lakes & rivers again.  The  Canada Geese stayed with us and are waiting for the weather to warm… Continue reading It is Still Winter at Fort Whyte Alive

Leopards, Tigers, Pandas & more

Deer Day at Fort Whyte

The beautiful weather continued yesterday, so I spent the morning wandering the trails at Fort Whyte Alive.  With the temperature hovering around 0C and under a bright sunny sky, it was absolutely gorgeous. Deer were everywhere, but even though these deer must be used to people walking the paths, they are still very wary and… Continue reading Deer Day at Fort Whyte
