Award winning river.

This week I’m doing something a little different, I’m heading down the Assiniboine River to The Forks where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet. This is where the City of Winnipeg every year makes the world’s longest river trail. 

Temp +1°C.  Yes, we are above freezing for the first time this winter! Feels like 0°C.

One of the highlights of the Skating Trail are these Warming Huts.

Another look at the warming huts.  They are usually spread out along the trail but the city is bringing them in closer as we are nearing the end of the season.

Another high lite is the hockey rink.

The Winnipeg Jets even had a practice this year on this rink.

I'm not sure why or how with all the cold weather we've been having that there could be such a large pool of water.

This one is a cute and colorful idea.
