return to the point

A new year's day walk along the recently re-opened Sassafras Point Trail in the Royal Botanical Gardens' Cootes Paradise.

The record setting warm weather (11C) had turned the trails muddy, though ice persisted on the sheltered inlets between Princess Point and Sassafras Point - a return to colder temps tonight and next week should get the ice back for skating.

The views from Sassafras Point are stunning. Unfortunately we were running out of light and time to follow the trail from the tip of the point back along the north side, so resolved to return and enjoy the tranquility and the ever changing landscape once the snow flies.
