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

A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are having some mild temperatures (for January) this week, so I had to head out and go for another walk this morning. Assiniboine Park is close and I haven’t walked around there for awhile – so that is where I drove. After walking through the English Gardens, I decided that maybe I should eat… Continue reading A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park

A Winter Visit to Beaudry Provincial Park

My first visit to Beaudry Provincial Park was early spring last year. Before then I hadn’t even known about it. I returned a couple of times during the summer, but only wrote the one post on my first visit. This morning I decided to do a winter walk there. I didn’t see or hear any… Continue reading A Winter Visit to Beaudry Provincial Park

Return to Bunn’s Creek

I haven’t been to Bunn’s Creek for over 2 months by the looks of things, so yesterday morning when I saw a break in the cold weather, I decided to head over there for a walk. I was actually amazed when I saw the temperature – it was a very mild -8C and there was… Continue reading Return to Bunn’s Creek

Hanging Out with the Boys

You met these cats a few weeks ago when I spent time with them in their home and I am back with them again – but that will end tomorrow. I have been taking a few photos (of course). For the last 2 photos, Rodney had been lying beside me when I opened the aquarium… Continue reading Hanging Out with the Boys

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

Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Autumn has arrived with quite a drop in temperature. We were lucky enough to have warm weather well into October, but reality is back with cloudy & cool days. I decided that a short drive to Fort Whyte Alive would give me a good walk and maybe some photo opportunities. Since the last photo was… Continue reading Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

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

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.
