Last week I enthused about the coast redwoods in Muir Woods just outside of San Francisco. They were truly spectacular, but sometimes it's easy to forget about the subtle beauty closer to home.
A week and a half ago, we took advantage of a rare Monday holiday to go for a hike just north of Toronto. Along with my mother, we visited Forks of the Credit Provincial Park for our traditional Thanksgiving hike. Between the fresh air, the blue skies and the trees in their autumnal glory, it was a perfect day out.
And of course, our post-Thanksgiving walk wouldn't be complete without an all-day breakfast at John's.
