Riding Mountain National Park

Back to the blogs about our Canada trip:

It was a rainy, cloudy day when we entered Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba. Beautiful aspen forests surrounded us as we drove into the park. There were two bison enclosures and we were able to drive quite close.

I don't know why, but I always enjoy getting to see bison - they're big, strong, and a historic symbol of the open prairie.

The wildflowers were beautiful.

From the daisies to the pink clover - there were flowers everywhere.

These reminded me of domestic day lilies, but they were small:

This young bear poked his head out of the forest to check us out. A little later we got to watch him grub for worms deep in the forest.

We were treated with a rainbow at the end of the day! What more can one ask!
