Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Part 3

After leaving the Bison enclosure, we took a different road back, heading into Onanole so I could gas up my car, instead of taking the drive back through the park.  The only gas stations open this time of year are either south of the park at Onanole or north of the park in Dauphin.  The… Continue reading Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Part 3

A Trip to Riding Mountain National Park in the Winter

One day while reading the posts on the RMNP Facebook group, I noticed someone posting that she had a room in her house for rent.  Her home is located just outside the park and she has horses (both hers and horses that are being boarded).  I had recently received my lease renewal and was facing… Continue reading A Trip to Riding Mountain National Park in the Winter

Since I have been a bit north, there are absolutely no clouds in the sky at all, so the sunrise… Continue reading May 22 – Olifants to Letaba
