Thursday's Child: Forks of the Credit Provincial Park

Thursday, October 24, 2013
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.

I like your tradition! We would always go on a family walk on Thanksgiving and Christmas...my mom would stay home and cook. I'm pretty sure they were her idea!

I agree we do often take for granted and forget the beauty in our own area. Your photographs are lovely. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. There is nothing better thank a morning hike followed by a hearty breakfast. I hope you have had a wonderful week. Bonnie

I forgot that you had Thanksgiving earlier than us.
I cannot even think about that or even Christmas coming--I'm still in summer mode! LOL

Your amazing pictures just confirmed what I always thought:
Autunm is the most beautiful season of the year!
And as you rightfully mentioned, it's a subtile beauty that needs to be appreciated with calm and serenity.
