A Spring Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Springtime brings hundreds of migrating birds who are heading for their nesting spots in the area or further north.  One of my favourite spots to see them is at Fort Whyte Alive, so I headed over there a few days ago to walk around.  It was a beautiful morning. I just barely cleared the entrance… Continue reading A Spring Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Day 2

Last night I told Debbie that I would probably be gone before she woke up and I was.  It was already light outside and I didn’t want to waste any daylight before having to head back home again.  I thanked Steve (who was up already), let the cat in the house and away I went. … Continue reading Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Day 2

It didn’t take too long before we were inside the Bison… Continue reading Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

It was a beautiful morning and I found photo opportunities… Continue reading Spring at Riding Mountain National Park

We have had a few days in a row where temperatures have stayed above freezing at night and gone up to the high teens during the day, so finally we are seeing lots of bare ground and the ice is pretty much gone from the rivers.  Lakes still have ice, but not strong enough to… Continue reading It’s Melting

A Drive to Lockport

This morning after breakfast, I decided to take a drive north to Lockport. According to Wikipedia, “Lockport is a small unincorporated community in Manitoba, Canada located just 28 km north of the city of Winnipeg.” A few years ago I managed to drive there when there were dozens of beautiful Pelicans around and I hope… Continue reading A Drive to Lockport

This Looks More Like Spring

I haven’t been for a walk at Fort Whyte Alive for awhile.  Near the end of winter and into early spring, I have found the walkways to be icy & slippery, so I wasn’t sure if I would stay to walk much or not – but it was a nice morning, so I headed there.… Continue reading This Looks More Like Spring
