Fort Whyte Alive in the Afternoon

My trips to Fort Whyte Alive have always been first thing in the morning – but yesterday, I had something to do in the area later in the day and decided to have lunch there and hang around until it was time to go.  This way I would avoid the construction on Bishop Grandin Blvd… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive in the Afternoon

July 6 and 7 – Riding Mountain National Park

I had been back home for almost a month and found that I was missing seeing critters and being in nature.  I could tell from the posts on the Riding Mountain National Park Facebook page that there were plenty of baby critters being seen there and decided I should see some Canadian critters and hopefully… Continue reading July 6 and 7 – Riding Mountain National Park

The trail goes in front of the bench, but no one… Continue reading Face to Face

Deer Day at Fort Whyte

The beautiful weather continued yesterday, so I spent the morning wandering the trails at Fort Whyte Alive.  With the temperature hovering around 0C and under a bright sunny sky, it was absolutely gorgeous. Deer were everywhere, but even though these deer must be used to people walking the paths, they are still very wary and… Continue reading Deer Day at Fort Whyte
