The Trails Behind My House

The area behind my house is mostly rock and undeveloped bush. At a time long in the past we would have been situated on an island, but when the glaciers melted and the lake drained, the island ended up connected with the mainland by a low-lying piece of land. A twenty foot rise in water level would put us back on an island again.

In “recent” years, recreational walking trails have developed and lately a map and signs have appeared. Winter, and the advent of “snowshoeing” as a recreational activity have made walking these trails a fun thing to do. They become packed hard enough that snowshoes are not required much of the time. If one wishes to set off through the bush off the trail, then snowshoes are a necessity but a pleasant trek through the bush can be had without them. The absence of leaves makes it possible to see some of the features of the area.

Opportunities for photographs are numerous.

Sharing the experience of the trails is particularly special.

Edge Of The Bush

On the edge of the bush the snowflakes pile up on the ground.

Deeper inside a canopy of snow is created.

Quiet In The Forest

A recent all day snowfall reminds me why one lives in the North.

It is fashionable among many to “hate” snow and wish it gone.

I find it impossible to align their thinking with the calm and delicacy I see here.

Open Bush

The bush at the top of Cardio Hill is wonderful to visit.

Unlike much of the tangled forest cover in Northern Ontario it is possible to see more than a few feet in almost any direction.

Early Snow In The Lane

After new snow the lane is dressed up.

The delicacy of the forest is accentuated and made more beautiful.

First Snow 2020

There is a small plantation of red pines at the beginning of my road.

Over the past 25 years, the trees have grown taller but not much larger in diameter. Occasionally one will succumb to age or rot, falling down and creating the odd open space.

However, the military alignment never changes.

When it snows for the first time in the winter, it becomes evident that the word “bush” cannot be used to describe this collection of trees. Not much randomness here.
