Lakeview Trail

My last walk of the day was the Lakeview Trail – around the lakes in Birds Hill Provincial Park (the place where I was completely lost last winter). It is so much easier to walk on the paths instead of wading through hip deep snow while not knowing where the path actually was. I don’t… Continue reading Lakeview Trail

A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2

The walk back to the car along the 2 trails was a nice walk again, but the birds and critters kept themselves hidden. I then drove over to the West Beach Parking lot and began walking the trail that goes around the lakes. This time, I walked the beach area first and then up and… Continue reading A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2

Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

I had decided I wasn’t going to set an alarm to get up and get out for the sunrises this trip – but amazingly enough, I work up early anyway. So – I headed out while it was still dark. I was greeted by the beautiful moon as soon as I went outside. It was… Continue reading Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

A Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

As I mentioned in my last post, I was at Fort Whyte Alive in the morning the other day and took several more photos than what I showed. Here they are! It was a cloudy morning, but the critters and the fall colours didn’t fail me. I was already booked to return in the evening… Continue reading A Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I had planned on heading out to either the Whiteshell Provincial Park or Grand Beach Provincial Park today, to spend some time with my feet in a lake. Unfortunately, rain was in the forecast, so I decided to hang out in Winnipeg and headed to Fort Whyte Alive. All signs of rain left and it… Continue reading A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 1

I set off early looking for a sunrise. It was a cloudy morning, but you never know what might happen. I got a few interesting morning sky photos from various locations anyway. 🙂 Next I found a cooperative bird, but don’t know what he is and hard to look anything up with the slow and… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 1

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 2

I was still at Lake Audy Dam at the end of the last post and was enjoying the scenery and the birds, when I saw something swimming off in the distance.  It was actually more just the water moving that I saw.  I zoomed in on it with my camera and was surprised to see… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 2

Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Part 3

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

Looking for Colour

I go on this little walk along the Seine River often, and many time I don’t even bring a camera – I just walk and enjoy the nature.  Today I brought my little camera to see if there is any colour left on the trees and bushes, while looking for critters and whatever else I… Continue reading Looking for Colour

Along the Red River and Back at Home

Yesterday morning’s walk with Chester along the Red River showed that several of the bushes have not been planted, but there are still many in pots.  I will have to see how things look there this morning. We also had a very quick glimpse of a Beaver.  It has been awhile since I’ve seen a… Continue reading Along the Red River and Back at Home
