June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 6

After leaving the Pelicans and Ducks, I continued along the gravel road towards the Bison Enclosure.  It is a fairly long drive, so I just sit back and enjoy it. On the way in, I completely missed photo opportunities for 2 Black Bears, that dashed into the bush before I could get my camera ready… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 6

A Couple of Days

Late one afternoon a couple of days ago, some of the Whitetail Deer that are around my apartment building came and spent some time in the field outside my window.  The young ones are hard to tell from the adults now, but it looks like the Moms are still a bit taller – although not… Continue reading A Couple of Days

Assiniboine Park Zoo – January

I am usually a fair-weather visitor to our zoo, but decided that it would be nice to see some of the critters out in the snow.  After all, we have many critters that thrive in winter conditions and I hoped they wouldn’t all be sleeping as they often are in the summer.  The temperature wasn’t… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo – January

Day 13 – Banff to Calgary

After breakfast this morning, I headed back to take those 2 drives, expecting to find the critters that were usually around there.  The Big Horn Sheep have always been around the first drive, but again this morning, they were completely absent.  Luckily it is still a beautiful drive.  When I was almost finished that circle… Continue reading Day 13 – Banff to Calgary

Day 12 – Jasper to Banff

Another beautiful morning and there was no frost on my car windows.  🙂  I took a picture of the mountains from my room in the dark before heading over for breakfast.  Mountains are beautiful even in the dark. For breakfast this morning I had banana bread french toast and it was delicious.  I didn’t stop… Continue reading Day 12 – Jasper to Banff

Day 11 – Jasper

I’m back in Alberta and have frost on my windshield again!  As far as I know, Manitoba hasn’t had frost yet. Of course, I don’t know – but feel the need to complain!  🙂 Once the frost was removed, it turned out to be an absolutely beautiful day here in Jasper. I had breakfast at… Continue reading Day 11 – Jasper

Geese and Elk

Yesterday’s walk along the Red River with Chester was very pleasant although the sun didn’t shine until after I got home.   The only picture I took was one of some geese flying but managed to make 2 pictures from it.  🙂 Then we’re into zoo pictures again to show some elk.  I see these elk… Continue reading Geese and Elk
