A walk in the Forest

Posted by Lorac Friday, 8 January 2010

There is a forest behind my house. I used to frequently walk there and the kids all took hikes and played in the woods. I hadn't been back there in some time and decided it was time. I had a wonderful walk, all by myself. It is just isolated enough to be a little scary walking alone. ( I like that!) Not fear of humans but more so animals. There are many coyote, fox and the occasional wolf. There has not been anyone attacked back there but still when you cross the fresh tracks of a pack of coyotes it makes you pause. I did pick up a big stick!

 There are some paths that the snowmobiles use but haven't heard any recently. It is predominately hard wood but of course we have the towering white pine that we are known for in the hills, some spruce and cedar too.

 The Dog Wood adds a pretty splash of crimson colour to the landscape. When I started this walk it was very sunny. It has gone form sunny to cloudy to partially cloudy in just an hour.

I have always had a fondness for cattails or bulrushes. There seed is spread on the winds and there was many fluffy white seed blowing around.

Silver Creek blends into the forest floor. It is completely frozen over and now is a pathway for the animals to walk for a long stretch with out brush to dodge around. There were many paw prints in the snow.

  A bright splash of red against the sky, the sumac retains it's colour well into the winter.

The weather is closing in fast. They have been saying more snow in the forecast.

A last shot of the hills, as I leave for home. Entirely overcast now.You can see why we are named Halton Hills. This is on the Niagara Escarpment.

Beautiful skies
