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

Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Spring was so slow to arrive this year and there are spots where snow still exists (just days before June). I’ve been wanting to get to RMNP for ages. Last year I was there in April, but this year the roads have been under water or washed out in many places. The park had even… Continue reading Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

My Daughter Came to Visit

Several years ago, my daughter Angela packed her bags and headed west. She hated Winnipeg (often called Winterpeg – for good reasons). It is not unusual for temperatures during the winter to get to a low of -40 (which is the same temperature in both C & F. Combined with a nasty wind much of… Continue reading My Daughter Came to Visit

A Fort Whyte Alive Morning Walk

We’ve been having some pretty chilly days lately with temperatures close to -30C and with wind chill values well into the -30’s. This morning it was a balmy -24C with the wind chills still in the -20’s, very little wind and bright sunny skies. So, I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Morning Walk

A Sunny Cold Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It has been about a month and a half since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive. Although it was a chilly morning with a temperature of -28C and a windchill in the -30’s I decided it was time to head over there. I didn’t stay long though. I only walked the smaller side where the… Continue reading A Sunny Cold Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are actually having amazing weather this year and now that we are into November, this certainly won’t last much longer. It was chilly when I went for my walk though. The temperature was about 1C with enough of a wind to make it feel colder. Of course, I managed a few photos on my… Continue reading A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine 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

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

It has been awhile since my last visit to Fort Whyte Alive, so this morning it was time to head back there. It is much quieter than during breeding season, but at this time of year that is normal. There were still plenty of photo opportunities. It was a nice morning for a walk –… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

My Walk Along Bunn’s Creek

It was a beautiful morning with temperatures in the low 20’s instead of the hot 30’s we have been getting the last few weeks. I thought Bunn’s Creek might be a good place to walk a bit, so that is where I headed. My plan was to walk all the way from the park along… Continue reading My Walk Along Bunn’s Creek

Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

Luckily we did not get the extreme & dangerously high temperatures that the west coast of Canada had a few days ago, but we had temperatures in the high 30C range – up to 38C. Parts of British Columbia were in the high 40C range almost 50C. Currently a large number of wildfires are burning… Continue reading Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop
