Fort Whyte Alive Walk

I didn’t really go to Fort Whyte prepared this morning (meaning I did not have my good camera with me), but I went anyway.  I always have my phone and my little pocket Nikon and I was out already after having my regular Saturday morning breakfast at the Red Top and a visit with my… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive Walk

Looking for Colour

I go on this little walk along the Seine River often, and many time I don’t even bring a camera – I just walk and enjoy the nature.  Today I brought my little camera to see if there is any colour left on the trees and bushes, while looking for critters and whatever else I… Continue reading Looking for Colour

July 6 and 7 – Riding Mountain National Park

The Squirrels were on the ground when I saw them – so I guess they are Ground Squirrels. 🙂     I planned my route last night to drive this morning, so set out at… Continue reading May 21 – Olifants

Spring in February?

I certainly wouldn’t have believed it and I still don’t, but the Canada Geese have returned already predicting a very early spring.   I still expect some major cold weather and snow storms and hope the geese will be ok. But – the critters seem to know the weather and their forecasts are often more accurate… Continue reading Spring in February?

Winter at the English Garden & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden

I’ve gone through the English Gardens & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden at Assiniboine Park in the summer before, but this is my first time going in the winter.  There are no flowers (of course), but the sculptures are still here.  It was a beautiful morning to wander around a bit with a temperature of +3C… Continue reading Winter at the English Garden & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden
