Drive around 15 minutes west from Winnipeg Beach and you’ll find the perhaps the oddest choice for a roadside attraction you’ve ever seen—a massive mosquito sculpture. The cruelest of cruel jokes, the statue can be found in Komarno (“mosquito infested” in Ukrainian), the self-confessed mosquito capital of Manitoba.

Went out to see the snakes at the Narcisse Snake Pits back in early May. There were decent numbers of snakes, but not enough for me to get any notable shots unfortunately. The sculpture will have to do!

Glenboro, Manitoba, home of Sara the Camel—an odd choice for a Manitoba roadside attraction until you consider the town’s proximity to the Carberry Desert. Yet another small town with quite a bit of character, Glenboro was a pleasant surprise on my recent travels.

Here’s a look at Souris, one of the prettiest towns in Manitoba. Likely best known for its swinging bridge, Souris is a town I will definitely visit again next time I find myself in that part of the province.

Gladstone, Manitoba. Worth a look. And how you could not, when you’re greeted by the delightful Happy Rock roadside attraction? An interesting find is the old Galloway Brothers Department Store, a rare non-urban Manitoban department store.

A quick look at some of the sites in and around Gimli, Manitoba. I was there during Icelandic Festival which explains all the people around the Gimli Viking. It was a gorgeous day and there were tonnes of people around; excellent to see!
