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

Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

This morning, I was up and heading back to the park and my favourite sunrise spot at Grayling Lake.  It was very cloudy, so I was pretty sure the sunrise would be a flop, but there was still time for the clouds to break apart – and I wasn’t going to waste the chance.

McFeetors Heavy Horse Centre

The Assiniboine Park Zoo is home to the McFeetors Heavy Horse Centre, which features Percheron horses.  To me, this seems like an unusual addition to the zoo, since Percheron horses are not known in the wild as far as I know.  Of course, this exhibit was entirely funded by donations and the park is allowing… Continue reading McFeetors Heavy Horse Centre
