Nature walking - Oct 10

Thanksgiving long week and perfect weather for a walk. No more than 15 minutes from our house there is a conservation area walk into Tiffany Falls that has been on our should visit list and today we finally made it.

Oct 10 1970 - Oct 10 2010.
After 40 years together we are still smiling.

From the entrance right beside the highway (small packed parking lot) you follow the meandering stream

on a well constructed path

and arrive at the base of the falls.

Along the way I took pictures: fungus on a tree

leaves in the water

We knew there was a set of falls upstream and thanks to Paul's great sense of direction we found an entrance to the wooded area from a nearby residential street.
The streams gently heads down over the escarpment rock

and becomes Washboard Falls


The water then continues downstream to Tiffany Falls.


We finished the day with a superb meal at Quatrefoil
