We took another drive to Manning Park today, it is one of our favourite places to explore. It is a Provincial Park with many different areas and trails of interest. The Dry Ridge Trail was as far as we could drive, past here the road was closed with snow in many areas. We hiked for awhile in a very harsh wind with super cold temperatures.
A favourite bird of many people is the Gray Jay. We were fortunate to have two of them come and play with each other near where we were.
A little Chipmunk watched from a distance.
A tiny Red Squirrel watched from a tree nearby.
A pretty Hermit Thrush stopped by while we were watching the Gray Jays.
Tiny Dogwood flowers and other Alpine Flowers were blooming.
Another Alpine dweller, the American Pika, also put in an appearance.
