Fall is in the Air

All photos taken on August 17, 2021, during our weekly walk in Bunchberry Meadows/Tucker’s Field.

This day was to be a cloudy day with highs of only +18C. Perfect for a walk in the forest.

We got under way a bit earlier than usual and as we stepped into the cool of the forest, we were surprised how fall-like it looked, how fall-like it felt.

Bunchberry Meadows

now donning its bright colours.

Fall is in the air

soft breeze stirring yellow leaves.

We revel in cool morning.

The trails were mostly empty. During our 10 km hike, we only saw 5 other hikers and 2 ladies on horseback.

The low vegetation is fast changing colour, with some bright pops higher up.

The Grove interval stop

The rehab zone. Grasses and flowers now adorn. The jury is still out on the saplings. Next spring?

Back in Tucker’s Field, we separated and I took a turn down through the wetlands. To say it was now overgrown was an understatement and I almost lost the path a couple of times.

Coming back out of the wild

Tucker’s Field interval stop

Equine sighting. As they passed our picnic stop, I exclaimed….Look Wildlife….and horses too! The ladies laughed politely.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Me too. This is the first time I have seen this type of planting. They take a growing branch with leaves and transplant it into the soil. Hopefully the roots survived. Thanks for reading. Allan


    1. Thanks. We did get our first small snowfall Sunday, then not much until Monday night. We got about 15 cm, but the worst of it was the 70 k/h winds. I shovelled three times yesterday until the wind died down. This will also melt….in March. Headed out to Bunchberry to see how it looks in the snow. -12 C by 10 AM. Ahhhh shirtsleeve hiking weather and no mosquitoes. Thanks for reading. Allan
