Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

This morning, I was up and heading back to the park and my favourite sunrise spot at Grayling Lake.  It was very cloudy, so I was pretty sure the sunrise would be a flop, but there was still time for the clouds to break apart – and I wasn’t going to waste the chance. With… Continue reading Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

I haven’t seen any of the White-tail Deer that I watched all summer long and decided to see if I could… Continue reading Quiet Morning Walk

Snowy Day Thoughts

Enough thinking for one day.  Let’s look at the pictures I took instead.  🙂 My view through the window at night (when it just started snowing) A similar view this morning (still snowing). No one is sitting on the… Continue reading Snowy Day Thoughts
