I can't recall the road #'s...but as we came in there was a bit of a valley and a house...almost more like a small cabin...nestled in the valley...it seemed more out of a Western movie...beautiful area.North of Neepawa is nice too..I took some backroads up to the Narrows last week everyday (working there) and discovered some beautiful scenery.Another spot which is gorgeous and I want to explore someday is the country between Holland and Pilot Mound..wonderful rolling hills and valleys..and those wind turbines in the fog are eerie...My wife and I were around there about 6-8 weeks ago before the snow...it is wonderful. One place you may want to consider in the spring is the road leading to Windygates near the US-Canada border, in the Pembina Hills...we go there last week of March, first week of April to watch the Hawks, Bald and occasional Golden Eagle(s), flying back from the south....we park on a steep road and sometimes see 100's of Birds of Prey...usually at high altitudes taking advantage of the thermals of this valleyMy list is getting too big..lol..Well I am off to hopefully catch some of thick hoar frost that appeared overnight.. Have a Merry Christmas!
I try to get out first thing in the AM, if Hoar Frost is present...I'm retired so have the luxury to travel when I want.....Merry Xmas.

Merry Xmas-when things quieten down a bit here (Xmas craziness ) I will find my bird book that gives exact directions to the Raptor site...which is before Windygates and post for you.
