Riding Mountain National Park July 2010

Riding Mountain National Park is a national park in Manitoba, Canada. The park sits atop the highest part of the Manitoba Escarpment. Consisting of a protected area 2,969 km2 (1,146 sq mi),[1] the forested parkland stands in sharp contrast to the surrounding prairie farmland. The park is home to wolves, moose, elk, black bears, hundreds of bird species, countless insects and a captive bison herd. The park was first protected in 1929 and had much of its public infrastructure created during the 1930s by labourers participating in Canada's great depression relief programs. Much of this early construction survives to this day. During World War II it was home to a Prisoner of War camp which has since been dismantled. In 1986, Riding Mountain was designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO.

We visited near the end of the season and the weather was not sunny and warm. So the number of snake was not very large compared to peak density. visit the following links for more info:
