Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Autumn has arrived with quite a drop in temperature. We were lucky enough to have warm weather well into October, but reality is back with cloudy & cool days. I decided that a short drive to Fort Whyte Alive would give me a good walk and maybe some photo opportunities. Since the last photo was… Continue reading Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

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

Birds, Flowers, Street Work & Voting

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

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

I hadn’t been to Fort Whyte Alive for a few weeks, so today seemed like a good day to head over there. They didn’t make it easy though since one of the roads I travel on to get there was closed – so I had to take a longer route. But, I made it there… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

The photos of the swallows are not great,… Continue reading Sturgeon Creek and Assiniboine Park

Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

It is interesting to watch as they arrive here – some will stay for the summer and and some will head further north. I’ll be keeping my eye on the Bald Eagle nest, but not sure how much I’ll… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 2

After lunch I headed back out again – going into Wasagaming with a plan on walking out on the dock at Clear Lake. I didn’t even reach the highway when I saw this doe. She was looking and calling – you can see her mouth open on the last photo. I suspect she was looking… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 2
