    'Riding Mountain National Park' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    Located in southwestern Manitoba, Riding Mountain National Park is where the aspen parkland meets the boreal forest. Surrounded by farmland, it includes large tracts of boreal forest, a section of deciduous forest to the east along the Manitoba Escarpment as well as sections of meadows and rough Fescue prairie to the west where a captive herd of plains bison roams. This wilderness area is home to wolves, black bears, moose, whitetail deer, elk and the great gray owl to name a few of its most commonly seen denizens.

    Riding Mountain National Park is a pristine place where countless lakes abound like Whirlpool Lake, captured in the warm, dramatic evening light of a passing storm.

    'Great Gray Owl' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The great gray owl, Stryx nebulosa, also known as The Phantom of the North, is a very large gray to grayish-brown owl found throughout the northern hemisphere. Great gray owls breed in the dense coniferous forests of the north and feed primarily on small rodents. They can locate mice under the snow through their excellent hearing and then plunging down through the snow to capture them. While mostly active at night, they can also be seen during the day.

    Great gray owls are long-lived birds, with captive individuals reaching 40 years of age. The great gray owl is the provincial bird of Manitoba.

    'Lake Winnipeg Dawn' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    Lake Winnipeg is the sixth largest lake in Canada and the eleventh largest on Earth. It is fed by three major rivers: the Saskatchewan River to the west, the Winnipeg River to the east and the Red River to the south. In turn, Lake Winnipeg flows into the Nelson River where it eventually empties into Hudson Bay.

    Along both eastern and western shores, mainly in the southern portions, many cottagers enjoy the beautiful beaches along its shores. In the southwestern section of the lake, the iconic ‘stick piers’ can be seen jutting out into the lake. These piers are unique to the area and are made of local aspen trees that are erected each the spring and taken down again each fall.

    'Inglis Prairie Giants' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    Inglis, Manitoba is home to the Five Prairie Giants – the Inglis Elevators. These prairie sentinels are preserved as the Inglis Grain Elevators National Historic Site. The elevators preserved are the Paterson elevator, the National elevator, the United Grain Growers elevator and two Reliance elevators. These five original elevators were built in 1922, the year the railway was established in the town of Inglis.

    This site represents one of the most important periods in the development of the Canadian grain industry. Rows of these iconic architectural symbols of the Prairies were prominently seen in most prairie towns but many have now disappeared. Of the nearly 6,000 grain elevators that once towered over the Canadian Prairie, only about 850 grain elevators remain.

    'Whiteshell Provincial Park' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The Canadian Shield, nearly four billion years old, covers the eastern and northern part of Manitoba. Along the Ontario border to the southeast of the province is located Whiteshell Provincial Park. It is an area of many lakes, rivers, forests and wildlife. In fact, Manitoba is known as the land of 100,000 lakes.

    The area is also highly prized as cottage country where folks relax and enjoy hiking, canoeing, boating and winter sports. As summer progresses and the air cools in the evenings, the warmer waters dissipate fog that rises golden in the morning sun, creating a most serene and peaceful place.
