Return to Canadian Museum for Human Rights

It has been extremely cold here and I don’t have any incentive to walk outside, so I decided that a return visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights would provide lots of walking space as well as a place for me to absorb more of the stories there. One of the nice perks of… Continue reading Return to Canadian Museum for Human Rights

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

Windchill at Fort Whyte Alive

It looked like a beautiful morning today and the temperature was starting at -4C this morning and rising to -1C during the day.  Unfortunately the forecast didn’t mention the wind and therefore the windchill.  It wasn’t just that I just missed it, since I talked to others who said the same thing.  I didn’t realize… Continue reading Windchill at Fort Whyte Alive

This Looks More Like Spring

I haven’t been for a walk at Fort Whyte Alive for awhile.  Near the end of winter and into early spring, I have found the walkways to be icy & slippery, so I wasn’t sure if I would stay to walk much or not – but it was a nice morning, so I headed there.… Continue reading This Looks More Like Spring

Looking for Spring

I went out for a walk along the Seine River (well, the still frozen Seine River), to see if I could find any signs of spring. There are lots of Canada Geese back here in Winnipeg, but I kind of suspect that they have teamed up with Mother Nature in this April Fools joke on… Continue reading Looking for Spring
