Thank You Dundas Valley!

Merrick Orchard, Dundas Valley, by M. Kay
Plenty of pedestrian activity in Dundas Valley today as the gorgeous weather carries through the long weekend. Fall colours and warm temps as Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving Day with a hike in the woods (not to mention cyclists and horseback riders, also in abundance).

Get out before you settle down for tofurkey, and soak up some of the beauty while building your appetite.  This weather will not last forever! If you have any autumn photos you would like to share, let me know, I'd be happy to post them on the site!

Thank you to the people who fought to preserve Dundas Valley from highways, roads and houses, so that we may enjoy the natural setting today.

Lower Spencer Creek Trail

Afternoon sun, Lower Spencer Creek Trail, Saturday, October 1, 2011
The weather took a turn toward cool, but once the clouds cleared, the sun did an admirable job of keeping things tolerable, nay, pleasurable on the Lower Spencer Creek Trail in Dundas.

And for those who have abandoned all hope for more glorious fall weather, oh ye of little faith: Environment Canada is forecasting sunny skies and temps around 18C for mid week and beyond.

Be prepared! Bring some rain gear and a sweater, but also sunglasses and sunscreen. It's autumn in Ontario, after all!
