Beautiful Day for a Walk

It was such a beautiful morning that I decided to head over to the Vedder River trail to walk. I usually avoid weekend walking since the trails can be busy, but thought I would go anyway. The fisher men & women were sure out in full force. As usual, I talked to a few people… Continue reading Beautiful Day for a Walk

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

Winter Visit to the Cedar Bog Trail

It has been almost 4 months since I’ve walked the Cedar Bog Trail in Birds Hill Provincial Park. Yesterday was a beautiful day, but last night, the snow and winds returned along with dropping temperatures. I’m happy that I got my walk in when the weather was good. This trail has spots where there is… Continue reading Winter Visit to the Cedar Bog Trail

Prairie Winds Trail followed by Pine Ridge Hollow

After my last maintenance problem with my car, I haven’t driven on the highway since – until today. I didn’t go too far, but have been wanting to get back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park and that is where I went. It is only about 13 km on the highway. My first walk of the… Continue reading Prairie Winds Trail followed by Pine Ridge Hollow

A Morning Stroll along Cedar Bog Trail

It was a chilly morning (for August) when I decided to head north to Birds Hill Provincial Park where I could walk on the Cedar Bog Trail. It seems like its been awhile since I’ve been out there, but especially since I’ve walked this trail. Rain wasn’t in the forecast, but there were some very… Continue reading A Morning Stroll along Cedar Bog Trail

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

After leaving the Black Bear with hidden cubs, I returned to the Bison enclosure to head back to the highway. Of course, I took more photos of the Bison and when I saw a couple of Pelicans flying above, I took a photo of them too. On the drive back to the highway, I stopped… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

Day 2 – part 3 at RMNP

After a yummy breakfast of French Toast & Bacon at the Whitehouse Bakery, I walked over to Ominnik Marsh for a short stroll. I didn’t stay at the marsh long and then headed back to Lake Katherine to check out the Loon’s Island Trail that starts there. I’ve gone a little bit into it before,… Continue reading Day 2 – part 3 at RMNP

Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 3

It was a short drive from the beach parking lot to the next parking lot, so I was soon walking along the Cedar Bog trail. The snow was pretty much gone, so other than some muddy spots – walking was good. 🙂 I could hear Chickadees, but they were not showing themselves to me –… Continue reading Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 3

An Afternoon Walk in the Park

Yesterday was Mother’s Day – so a belated Mother’s Day to all the mothers. Hope you had a good day. Social distancing makes it hard to get the hugs, but hopefully everyone got a phone call. My daughter called me and we had a lovely chat just before I headed out for my walk. We… Continue reading An Afternoon Walk in the Park

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 3

We were still in the Bison Enclosure and had just left the White-tail Deer in the last post, and I was continuing along on the one way road towards the exit.  This road has lots of curves, especially once you get into the bush and it is quite a narrow road (which is why it… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 3
