Walking Around the Lakes

I continued my walk from yesterday and once I arrived back on the beach side, I could see more birds and a little closer from the far side. I wasn’t sure what the first bird was until I saw the 2nd one. The male is obviously a Hooded Merganser, so I checked and found out… Continue reading Walking Around the Lakes

The Lakes & Beaches at Birds Hill Provincial Park

Last year, I set out on this walk in February and I got myself lost. The trails were buried in snow and it was my first time walking this trail. After quite a bit of time (no idea of actual time), I ran into some people, who steered me in the right direction. This walk… Continue reading The Lakes & Beaches at Birds Hill Provincial Park

Next Stop – Birds Hill Provincial Park

From Lockport, it was a short drive to #59 highway and then I headed south to Birds Hill Provincial Park and then turned off and headed into the park.

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

Follow-up to Lost in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

This morning I pulled up an online map of Bird’s Hill Provincial Park to try to determine where I had actually gone in my wanderings the other day. Here is the map and I have marked a few spots that I know but there is a large blank spot where I have no idea how… Continue reading Follow-up to Lost in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

Riding Mountain National Park – Day 3, part 1

Another beautiful morning for my first drive of the day. I come here to see the critters – but the views are beautiful also. The Loons were gathering in the water, and I’m not sure what they were doing, but my zoom lens managed to get a few photos. Now, it was time for some… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – Day 3, part 1
