Thanksgiving Day Hike

As is often our tradition, we do a hike on Thanksgiving Day weekend. Today we went to Foley Mountain Park in Westport, ON. The air was fresh, the sky was blue, and the trees were just beginning to colour.

We followed the Orange Maple Trail

The trail wound through young forest on the rocky Canadian Shield.
The canopy was beginning to turn colour.

And closer to Big Rideau Lake the colours were more vibrant.

We enjoyed exercise, fresh air, and sunshine.

We're pretty sure we saw a bear paw print in the sand. What do you think?

It was an afternoon of blessing and goodness. Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

  1. We also went for a hike on Sunday, after our big early -afternoon dinner. We brought along bird seed, which chickadees ate out of our hands. Fun!
