A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 1

Although I am lucky enough to have several places in or near the city where I can roam freely and take photos, I always love to go a bit further away where I can completely immerse myself in nature. I also get to see more variety and sizes of wildlife when I head up to… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 1

Day 2 – part 4 at RMNP

Now it was time to head back north towards and then past Moon Lake. Around this time the critters often start to move. I had to stop in at Moon Lake to see if any water had opened up there yet and since I have seen both Bears and Moose in and around the parking… Continue reading Day 2 – part 4 at RMNP

Day 2 – part 3 at RMNP

After a yummy breakfast of French Toast & Bacon at the Whitehouse Bakery, I walked over to Ominnik Marsh for a short stroll. I didn’t stay at the marsh long and then headed back to Lake Katherine to check out the Loon’s Island Trail that starts there. I’ve gone a little bit into it before,… Continue reading Day 2 – part 3 at RMNP

Finally – Back to RMNP – part 4

It was now mid-afternoon, so some of the critters might start moving before too long. I had not yet driven one of my favourite roads – #19, so that is where I started off. First stop was Lake Katherine, but all I could find there were a pair of Buffleheads – so I took their… Continue reading Finally – Back to RMNP – part 4

I… Continue reading Finally – Back to RMNP – part 3

Finally – Back to RMNP – part 2

I won’t be checking into the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast until after noon, so I have plenty of time to visit all my favourite stops before then. The Spruces has a beautiful sunset almost every night. The Wishing Well Road has a beautiful sunset for a limited amount of time – the sun just needs… Continue reading Finally – Back to RMNP – part 2

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

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 3

We were still in the Bison Enclosure and had just left the White-tail Deer in the last post, and I was continuing along on the one way road towards the exit.  This road has lots of curves, especially once you get into the bush and it is quite a narrow road (which is why it… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 3
