After leaving the Black Bear with hidden cubs, I returned to the Bison enclosure to head back to the highway. Of course, I took more photos of the Bison and when I saw a couple of Pelicans flying above, I took a photo of them too. On the drive back to the highway, I stopped… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 3
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
Another beautiful morning for my first drive of the day. I come here to see the critters – but the views are beautiful also.

Now, it was time for some… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – Day 3, part 1
I had to take one more drive before bedtime and it turned out to be a mostly Black Bear drive. For some variety I drove up to get a photo of the walking man tree. It is north of Moon Lake.

We finished yesterday’s entry as I was leaving the Boreal Trail in Riding Mountain National Park. The walk had such a sweet ending when I met a gorgeous little Pine Marten. The plan is to continue South and head for the Bison enclosure. I arrived at the Lake Audy Road without incident (or sightings), but… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 3
It is turning out to be not too bad a weekend for me, although they predicted rain this afternoon (which didn’t happen) and now rain tonight, overnight and tomorrow. It is 19C right now, so thats not bad. I had talked myself into building new steps for the back deck this weekend, but that didn’t… Continue reading August 28th – trip to the zoo
