Berry Colour Fall

All photos taken on September 14, 2022.

With Bunchberry Meadows closed until October 31, we opted to walk River View Trail near Devon today. No bug jackets required as the skeeters are all dead. We packed a picnic lunch for the first time in a while. And while it is not yet seasonal fall, it is meteorological fall and colours are starting to show.

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. Agreed. Our fall colours typically come too early, but they did linger this year (for our part of the world) and we were able to enjoy both hiking and biking before we headed off to the West Coast. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan

  1. Beautiful photos and beautiful autumn colours, Allan 🙂 Autumn at its best can offer superb walking conditions: Crisp weather, gorgeous scenery and tranquillity. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Thanks Bernie. Bunchberry only used to close for the spring melt, so they could do maintenance and avoid damage to muddy paths. This year, they started to close for September and October “to provide comfort during the bird migration and ungulate (deer and moose) rutting season. This totally shut us off from the fall colours, so we were glad to find them at River View. Thanks for reading. Allan
