Walking Along Sturgeon Creek

Sturgeon Creek flows south into the Assiniboine River – not too far from where I live. Much of the the creek in Winnipeg has a walking path beside it. That is where I decided to walk yesterday. I drove to the parking lot that is just south of Portage Avenue, which is close to the… Continue reading Walking Along Sturgeon Creek

My Second Walk of the Day at Assiniboine Park

On my way home from Fort Whyte Alive, I decided to drive into Assiniboine Park to continue my walking. Of course, I was looking for more photo opportunities and I found some. 🙂 I didn’t go into the zoo, but the Heavy Horse Centre is viewable from outside the zoo. The Mallard Ducks turned to… Continue reading My Second Walk of the Day at Assiniboine Park

A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

The last time I went to Fort Whyte Alive, I was prepared for wet & muddy paths and I wore my pair of rubber boots. The boots came in very handy as I waded through water & mud in a few spots. Today, I decided that it hadn’t rained in a few days and the… Continue reading A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Spring was so slow to arrive this year and there are spots where snow still exists (just days before June). I’ve been wanting to get to RMNP for ages. Last year I was there in April, but this year the roads have been under water or washed out in many places. The park had even… Continue reading Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Spring at Oak Hammock Marsh

Yesterday, I drove north to Oak Hammock Marsh to have a walk. Last time I went there this year, I had to walk through deep snow and didn’t end up going far. It was hard work walking when each step took me to my knees (& sometimes deeper). There were still little spots of snow… Continue reading Spring at Oak Hammock Marsh

Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Although there is still snow and ice in abundance here, there is also water – lots of water. Due to our high amount of snowfall this year, the melting snow and ice is now causing flooding in many parts of the province. Winnipeg (or Winterpeg, which it is often called) has almost made it through… Continue reading Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Walking Around the Lakes

I continued my walk from yesterday and once I arrived back on the beach side, I could see more birds and a little closer from the far side. I wasn’t sure what the first bird was until I saw the 2nd one. The male is obviously a Hooded Merganser, so I checked and found out… Continue reading Walking Around the Lakes

Winter Visit to the Cedar Bog Trail

It has been almost 4 months since I’ve walked the Cedar Bog Trail in Birds Hill Provincial Park. Yesterday was a beautiful day, but last night, the snow and winds returned along with dropping temperatures. I’m happy that I got my walk in when the weather was good. This trail has spots where there is… Continue reading Winter Visit to the Cedar Bog Trail

Spending Some Time with Cats

I’d like to introduce you to 3 cats who were in need of someone to spend time with them while their owners were away this week. Of course, I arrived with my camera and managed a few photos. Here are Spencer, Dave and Rodney! Spencer spends almost all of his day (& night) in the… Continue reading Spending Some Time with Cats

A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are actually having amazing weather this year and now that we are into November, this certainly won’t last much longer. It was chilly when I went for my walk though. The temperature was about 1C with enough of a wind to make it feel colder. Of course, I managed a few photos on my… Continue reading A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park
