  • Rodin and Hiking: A Winnipeg Winter
    The nights are frosty and the cooler days now vastly outnumber the warm ones. In lakes and ponds, the ducks and geese are gathering, and occasionally a “V” of birds passes overhead. Signs of the end of summer are multiplying, and classes are in full swing for students of all ages. In Winnipeg, as in many other Canadian cities, fall is a time when people return from their summer travel to settle down for another season, getting back to the daily routines they put on hold for the warm summer months. Yet there are still many events to attract visitors to Manitoba's capital city in the fall and winter months; for activities ranging from sports to bird-watching to attending concerts, Winnipeg is the place to be in the coming season.
