A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Right after Christmas, I purchased a new coat during the boxing day sales.  It is much warmer than anything I have had before and would come in handy while volunteering at the zoo and walking at Fort Whyte Alive.  The weather was warmer than usual during this time, so I didn’t wear it until today… Continue reading A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Beautiful Winter day at Oak Hammock Marsh

Friday was a bright & sunny morning with temperatures around the 0C mark.  I couldn’t let a day like this go by without getting out and taking some pictures and since I haven’t been to Oak Hammock Marsh for awhile, that is where I headed. I got there just before noon and decided to have… Continue reading Beautiful Winter day at Oak Hammock Marsh

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 4

This is my last morning here and I decided to sleep in a bit and hang around for the breakfast that comes with the lodging.  I have an east facing window in my room and saw that there was no chance of a sunrise picture in the park anyway.  After I woke up, I packed… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 4

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 3

We were still in the Bison Enclosure and had just left the White-tail Deer in the last post, and I was continuing along on the one way road towards the exit.  This road has lots of curves, especially once you get into the bush and it is quite a narrow road (which is why it… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 3
