Life Goes On

Since my fall in December, I haven’t gone out much at all. I did take a return trip to Fort Whyte Alive, but otherwise, it has been only grocery shopping at the store next door to my apartment or ordering online for delivery. My FitBit bugs me to keep moving – so I walk around… Continue reading Life Goes On

Fort Whyte Alive with an Ooops

Fort Whyte Alive has re-opened. The outside is open, but we can’t go inside the building where the regular entrance is. The entrance has been moved to a side gate right at the start of the trails. I was quickly signed in and was on my way. Under a dull and cloudy sky, I took… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive with an Ooops

Revisiting Assiniboine Forest

The original plan for my next visit to Assiniboine Forest was to go much earlier in the morning – but that didn’t happen. A few days ago I ordered a Poinsettia from Shermerdine and it was ready this morning – so I went there first. I was amazed at how beautiful this was since I… Continue reading Revisiting Assiniboine Forest

A Different trail in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

I have almost turned into this trail other times thinking it was the Prairie Winds trail and this time I decided I would check it out. This is the Pine Ridge Trail. It was a very short walk to the Kudlowich homestead. It is the only homestead left on the trail, but it looks like… Continue reading A Different trail in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

A Stroll around St. Vital Park

The weather has been great for going on walks lately and I am enjoying the fresh air and exercise. This morning I decided I was going to walk around St. Vital Park. I found some White-tailed Deer not far from the park, but I can’t take photos while driving, so I hoped to see them… Continue reading A Stroll around St. Vital Park

Back to Bunn’s Creek

I am still trying to find the Cardinals at Bunn’s Creek and they are just never around on the days/times when I go. I still had a nice walk, talked to a few people and pet a few dogs – so the walk wasn’t a waste of time or energy. One very helpful lady who… Continue reading Back to Bunn’s Creek

Assiniboine Forest – Exploring a different area

Yesterday, I decided to check out a different area of the Assiniboine Forest. This is a large area that pretty much begins at the Assiniboine Park. The park starts at the Assiniboine River. Some areas in the park are bush and it is common to find White-tailed Deer right along with other urban wildlife. Corydon… Continue reading Assiniboine Forest – Exploring a different area

A Chickadee Morning at Birds Hill Provincial Park

It was still dark when I headed out this morning. The forecast for today was going to be above freezing and I wanted to be at Birds Hill Provincial Park shortly after the sun would be rising. It was daylight when I arrived, but the sun was hiding behind a sky full of clouds. It… Continue reading A Chickadee Morning at Birds Hill Provincial Park

A Chilly, Windy Stroll in Assiniboine Forest

The temperature was -7C, it was quite windy and a few flakes of snow were falling when I headed out for a walk. I decided on Assiniboine Forest, thinking the wind wouldn’t be too bad in the trees. It has been many, many years since I have walked here and back then it was just… Continue reading A Chilly, Windy Stroll in Assiniboine Forest

Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park

Until my last move, I have always lived east of Assiniboine Park and always entered from the east. Since I moved west of the park a couple of months ago, I found out that there is a large western side of the park with trails. I have now been entering the west side and driving… Continue reading Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park
