Silver Creek, Halton Hills

Posted by Lorac Sunday, 26 September 2010

 I went out for a drive, crossed this old bridge and I revisited a spot I like to walk. I usually go to Silver Creek in the spring when the water is higher and rushing down the stream. Today it was a slow flow of water, speaking softly to the surrounding woods. I parked and went down the embankment to the one side of the old bridge.

 With this lovely pond on the other side. Lots of little minnows swimming in there.The fall colours really soften the picture.

This tree on the bank of the stream doesn't let anything get in it's way. Look at the bottom right. It is a home dug into the bank for some small animal.

 I am not sure what these fall wildflowers are, but they were everywhere and so pretty!

This little red squirel was chittering away as I walked in his forest. I must admit, I talked back!

Thanks for visiting!

  2. Your fall is lovely. The roots of that tree provide a snug burrowing spot for a critter.

  6. The bridge is gorgeous...a great place to take a stroll.

    African drumming? The college in Brockport has one of the best dance departments in the country. There is a group there called Sankofa, which is African Dancing and Drumming. They have existed for as long as I can remember and at the end of every April we go to their performances. During Dance Awareness Week (February) anyone can go participate in any of the dance classes. I would go to the African Dance and Drumming classes (that was a long time ago). On Saturdays you can attend drumming open jams during the school year. When there are 30 or 40 people in a room drumming, you can feel it in your gut. Amazing. Jeff, who is facilitating this jam at the farm...does drumming at local events...if I was there I would participate. It led to this.

  8. Beautiful photos of a very peaceful looking place! I love the roots on that tree. :)

  9. I love the picture of the tree roots with the huge rock underneath. That is very unique.
