The Lakes & Beaches at Birds Hill Provincial Park

Last year, I set out on this walk in February and I got myself lost. The trails were buried in snow and it was my first time walking this trail. After quite a bit of time (no idea of actual time), I ran into some people, who steered me in the right direction. This walk… Continue reading The Lakes & Beaches at Birds Hill Provincial Park

A Fort Whyte Alive Morning Walk

We’ve been having some pretty chilly days lately with temperatures close to -30C and with wind chill values well into the -30’s. This morning it was a balmy -24C with the wind chills still in the -20’s, very little wind and bright sunny skies. So, I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Morning Walk

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

A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are having some mild temperatures (for January) this week, so I had to head out and go for another walk this morning. Assiniboine Park is close and I haven’t walked around there for awhile – so that is where I drove. After walking through the English Gardens, I decided that maybe I should eat… Continue reading A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park

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

Cedar Bog Trail

After breakfast yesterday I drove over to the Cedar Bog trail for a little longer walk than I had at Prairie Winds trail. The temperature was warmer for this walk than the earlier one. That ended this trail and tomorrow we will continue with my 3rd walk.

Bunn’s Creek in the Early Autumn

Yesterday morning I decided it was time to go back to Bunn’s Creek for my walk. It has been about a month since I’ve been there. My first sighting was a beautiful Belted Kindfisher. He was on the opposite side of the creek and he tested my camera’s zoom ability. Amazingly enough, I got a… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek in the Early Autumn

Birds, Flowers, Street Work & Voting

I was awakened early this morning with machinery sounds as workers were outside my window working. I was surprised they were working this early as it was before 7:00 am – but they were. I rolled over to try to get back to sleep – but it was too noisy, so I finally decided I… Continue reading Birds, Flowers, Street Work & Voting

Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

It felt like ages since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive, but really, it has only been a couple of weeks. Walks are never the same though. I get to watch different critters/birds/reptiles/insects each time. It was a beautiful day for a walk. The heat wave which has been around for a few days was… Continue reading Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera
