June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 6

After leaving the Pelicans and Ducks, I continued along the gravel road towards the Bison Enclosure.  It is a fairly long drive, so I just sit back and enjoy it. On the way in, I completely missed photo opportunities for 2 Black Bears, that dashed into the bush before I could get my camera ready… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 6

June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 5

I had a good night’s sleep after that exciting Black Bear evening, and around 5:00 am, I was awake and heading out the door to see what I could find. First sighting was a White-tailed Deer, who looked to see who was stopping for her. Most people don’t even slow down for the deer, but… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 5

Anyway – the weather here is just so gorgeous, that I had to take… Continue reading A Day Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Nov 9

Of course, I don’t know – but feel the need to complain!  🙂 Once the frost was removed, it turned out to be an absolutely beautiful day here in Jasper. I had breakfast at… Continue reading Day 11 – Jasper

Lions and Bears

This is my last post and pictures of the African Lions who have been at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg here.  The pair and their 2 month old cub have been sent home to Ontario. I had been hoping to get pictures of the cub when I was there earlier this month, but the… Continue reading Lions and Bears

Vacation 2010

On June 20th my friend Connie and I left for our vacation to Calgary, Banff, Jasper and Edmonton. We drove the trans canada highway and were hoping the the flooding from the day before had receded and the highway would be open at the Alberta/Saskatchewan border.  Unfortunately, that didn’t happen as our 14 hour drive… Continue reading Vacation 2010
