Back to RMNP – Day 2

After a good night’s sleep, Debbie and I were up early, grabbed breakfast at Timmies and headed into the park for the sunrise at Grayling Lake.  I have taken some great sunrise pictures there in the past.  Today we left Debbie’s car in Dauphin and just went in mine for the day. We hadn’t reached… Continue reading Back to RMNP – Day 2

Anyway – the weather here is just so gorgeous, that I had to take… Continue reading A Day Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Nov 9

Day 16 – Going Home

The plan for today was to get a sunrise picture from the same place I took the sunset picture yesterday (only facing the other way).  🙂  So – I was up and headed over there on this brisk morning. The sunrise was a dud.  The sun came up without any colours at all – and… Continue reading Day 16 – Going Home
