Spent a very warm day in the Whiteshell back in late January. Much of the day was a fairly dreary grey, but I was treated to some lovely fog at dawn.
Got treated to some amazing color in the sky at the tail end of my November 6, 2016 Manitoba road trip. Great end to a great day.
A quick look at the town of Westbourne, Manitoba.
A quick stop in Minnedosa, Manitoba—one of the prettiest towns in the province.
Ran into these horses north of Sandy Lake (Highway 470 I think)—almost literally. I drove slowly towards them, thinking they would step out of the way. But instead, they all gathered around the car, licking and sucking at anything they could get their lips around—even the windshield wipers. I honked and shouted, rocked the car back and forth, cranked the radio, but nothing phased them. The only thing that got them to move was a little squirt of wiper fluid; I hated to do that, but I seriously thought they otherwise would have destroyed the car.
A look at the tiny community of Solsgirth, Manitoba.
We were treated to such an amazing, long Autumn in 2016, that I was able to squeeze in one last Manitoba road trip. This one started at what might be may favorite grain elevator in the province—Oberon, Manitoba.
