Walking Along Sturgeon Creek

Sturgeon Creek flows south into the Assiniboine River – not too far from where I live. Much of the the creek in Winnipeg has a walking path beside it. That is where I decided to walk yesterday. I drove to the parking lot that is just south of Portage Avenue, which is close to the… Continue reading Walking Along Sturgeon Creek

A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

The last time I went to Fort Whyte Alive, I was prepared for wet & muddy paths and I wore my pair of rubber boots. The boots came in very handy as I waded through water & mud in a few spots. Today, I decided that it hadn’t rained in a few days and the… Continue reading A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

RMNP – part 2 – May 2022

After I left Moon Lake, I headed south and turned into Lake Audy Road to see how far I could go. The Mallard Duck and the White-tailed Deer photos were taken right on #10 highway. This Mallard Duck was looking mighty handsome and the 3 White-tailed Deer kept eating while I snapped a quick photo.… Continue reading RMNP – part 2 – May 2022

Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Although there is still snow and ice in abundance here, there is also water – lots of water. Due to our high amount of snowfall this year, the melting snow and ice is now causing flooding in many parts of the province. Winnipeg (or Winterpeg, which it is often called) has almost made it through… Continue reading Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

A Beautiful Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I was thinking it has been awhile since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive and looking back on my posts, I see it has been about 5 weeks. That IS a long time! But, it was a beautiful morning so that is where I went this morning.

Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

I thought that when I actually got a photo of one of the Cardinals that live around and near Bunn’s Creek, I would be satisfied – but I would really like better photos. So, I headed back there again a few days ago for another try. My first sighting that morning was upsetting. I found… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Plenty of birds are arriving here in Manitoba after vacationing in the south over the winter. It is interesting to watch as they arrive here – some will stay for the summer and and some will head further north. I’ll be keeping my eye on the Bald Eagle nest, but not sure how much I’ll… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

First stop was the parking lot at the main entrance where you can access the trails around… Continue reading A Morning at Oak Hammock Marsh
