Riding Mountain National Park Oct 17 continued

I arrived in Riding Mountain National Park in the morning, after exploring I went to Dauphin for lunch and to get checked into my motel room.  Now, it is time to head back into the park.  I will be visiting many of the same spots and maybe even taking the same pictures – but there… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park Oct 17 continued

May 27 – Tamboti

No fog this morning, but some clouds which just might make a nice sunrise. I wasn’t even off the camp road when I met an Elephant willing to pose for me. Without the fog from yesterday, it was even light enough to see.   A couple of Wildebeests were next and then the rest of… Continue reading May 27 – Tamboti

May 22 – Olifants to Letaba

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

Day 15 – Yorkton to Riding Mountain National Park

Breakfast was served starting at 5:30 am today, so knowing that I was going to loose an hour once I crossed into Manitoba, I decided I might as well get started early. Other than getting a stone chip on my windshield, the drive was uneventful and I was soon in Riding Mountain National Park.  I… Continue reading Day 15 – Yorkton to Riding Mountain National Park

Unpacking & Chester’s Adjustments

I dislike unpacking much more than packing.  I still have several boxes to unpack, but I don’t seem to be finding the items I want.  They must all be in the bottom boxes.  That is my push to keep going, I guess. I still have to pack more at the house to bring over and… Continue reading Unpacking & Chester’s Adjustments
