A weekend walk

It's been a very dry, very cold weekend but the parking lot at the trail was in good shape - I knew I wouldn't get the car stuck - so off I went.

This part of the creek is still open water.

But some of it is frozen, though I think the ice is not very thick.

Just before I took this shot of the river, a Great Blue Heron heard my boots on the snow and flew off.

A remnant of fall. This leaf was about the size of a Loonie - Canadians will know what I mean.

The bridge that leads back to the parking lot.

Two of the very few feathered friends about on this cold morning - Mallard Ducks.


  1. Very beautiful shots! I love that one leaf is surviving the cold...and the ducks too! :-)

  2. I had a very similar walk this weekend, I think I even met your duck's cousins.
