Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Part 3

After leaving the Bison enclosure, we took a different road back, heading into Onanole so I could gas up my car, instead of taking the drive back through the park.  The only gas stations open this time of year are either south of the park at Onanole or north of the park in Dauphin.  The… Continue reading Spring at Riding Mountain National Park – Part 3

Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

This morning, I was up and heading back to the park and my favourite sunrise spot at Grayling Lake.  It was very cloudy, so I was pretty sure the sunrise would be a flop, but there was still time for the clouds to break apart – and I wasn’t going to waste the chance.

We hadn’t reached… Continue reading Back to RMNP – Day 2

A friend (Debbie F) who I met on the FaceBook page for RMNP had talked about taking a trip there together when she had some days off work and this… Continue reading Back to RMNP

A Couple of Days

Late one afternoon a couple of days ago, some of the Whitetail Deer that are around my apartment building came and spent some time in the field outside my window.  The young ones are hard to tell from the adults now, but it looks like the Moms are still a bit taller – although not… Continue reading A Couple of Days
