Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 4

This is my last morning here and I decided to sleep in a bit and hang around for the breakfast that comes with the lodging.  I have an east facing window in my room and saw that there was no chance of a sunrise picture in the park anyway.  After I woke up, I packed… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 4

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 1, part 3

There is only 1 stream that we cross over on the road to the Bison Enclosure, and I always have to stop for a picture – just one side and I’ll get the other side on the way out.

Its a good thing I have zoo pictures because there wasn’t anything to see for our walk along the Red River this morning.  I did see some ducks, but they were busy foraging in the bushes… Continue reading Zoo Review
