An Afternoon Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Today is another amazing day (for this time of year), but I couldn’t do my usual morning walk. I was waiting for a phone call and wanted to be home to make notes. So – I headed out to Fort Whyte Alive in the afternoon. The mornings (when I usually go) are much quieter than… Continue reading An Afternoon Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Taking Advantage of an Unusually Mild November Day

Occasionally we have some above 0C temperatures in November, but usually by now, the days are mostly below 0C. So, with a predicted high of plus 9, I knew I would be out walking a trail or 2 in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park. The next 2 days are predicted to be even a little bit… Continue reading Taking Advantage of an Unusually Mild November Day

Last Stop of the Day – at Bunn’s Creek

Heading home after the morning in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park, I decided that since I would be very close to Bunn’s Creek, I might as well make one more stop of the day for my last stroll. The only bird who stopped to pose for me, was this beautiful Blue Jay – and I had… Continue reading Last Stop of the Day – at Bunn’s Creek

Lakeview Trail and Bur Oak Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park

I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go after walking the Chickadee trail, but as I approached the overlook parking lot, I turned in. It has been awhile since I stopped there. This time I actually looked at the map and realized that the lakes and marsh (where I got lost last year) are directly… Continue reading Lakeview Trail and Bur Oak Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park

Chickadee Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park

I always seem to keep repeating the same trails every time I go to Birds Hill Provincial Park, but this morning I decided in advance that it is time I tried the Chickadee Trail. I was at the entrance to the trail a few years ago when a good friend (Judy) brought me out there… Continue reading Chickadee Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park

Last Stop on the Way Home

After leaving the Captain Kennedy House & Gardens, I continued along River Road until I got to the highway that turns into Main Street as we head back to Winnipeg. Right on Main Street is Kildonan Park, so I had to turn into there. 😉 First stop (well the only stop, since I walked to… Continue reading Last Stop on the Way Home

A Morning at Lockport

I decided to head north to Lockport to see if any Pelicans were still hanging out there. It was a beautiful morning and I enjoyed the drive. When I reached Lockport, I headed for the little park where I can usually get some decent photos, but the bridge construction has pretty much blocked off the… Continue reading A Morning at Lockport

Lakeview Trail

My last walk of the day was the Lakeview Trail – around the lakes in Birds Hill Provincial Park (the place where I was completely lost last winter). It is so much easier to walk on the paths instead of wading through hip deep snow while not knowing where the path actually was. I don’t… Continue reading Lakeview Trail

Cedar Bog Trail

After breakfast yesterday I drove over to the Cedar Bog trail for a little longer walk than I had at Prairie Winds trail. The temperature was warmer for this walk than the earlier one. That ended this trail and tomorrow we will continue with my 3rd walk.

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
