Riel House National Historic Site

Today was the last day of our Winnipeg Road Trip. We packed up camp at Bird's Hill and headed back over to the Forks so that Sierra could play in the splash pad one last time. We ate lunch in the market again and then headed south to the Riel House National Historic Site.

We headed down to the Trappist Monastery Provincial Park and the ruins of a monastery (of course).
