At this point we were getting quite far along the trail.
The grasshoppers were hopping every which way.
It was also starting to get warmer so more bugs were flying around.
When the walkways were made the boulders were just pushed over to the side.
Hmmmmm, some of those would look lovely in our garden! ;)
We were now walking on a trail made from the old train line. The tracks were torn up and the walking trail put in. I know, Chuck is a fashion statement!
I'm not quite sure what these bugs are. Water spiders???
This is one of the old train track bridges over the creek. Can you imagine travelling on the train through all this beauty? My Mum and I would take the train occasionally to Toronto from St Catharines. I loved it! You see such different things then you do in a car.
More interesting Fungi.
We were on our way back now.
Big, beautiful Oak tree.
I was trying to get the Black Eyed Susan's in the background without stepping in some poison ivy.
Back in swampy area now.
There was a huge grove of ferns.
I just happened to spot this. An Oil Pie Line running right through the conservation are.
Judging by the map we think we walked around 5 kilometres.
I have no idea what this is. Just pretty.
This I know is Jewelweed. It was a little windy so the plant kept moving.
Last bridge before the parking lot.
Tired, happy (and blurry) feet. My Mum gave me these sandals. They are terrific for walking long distances.
I hope you enjoyed all the photos. I enjoyed taking them very much.
We quickly went to a yard sale at the Brighton Curling Club this morning. I love these giant pine cones but I didn't want to pay the craft store price. Hard to tell but they are about 6 inches high. I like to use them for Fall and Christmas decorating. Fifty cents for the 6 of them is my price!
Everyone knows how much I love birds. I couldn't pass up these two mugs for a dollar.
I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Take care.
