Signs of Spring

There were many signs of spring while out on a hike with a group of friends on the Bruce Trail this past weekend.  It was a beautiful day for being outdoors.   The air was cool and crisp, the sun was shining with many hints of warmer weather to come.

The ponds and streams were full and flowing, unlike other years where it has been so dry.  On some of the ponds there were Canada Geese and in one spot there were Turkey Vultures lurking above us. 

Our hike lasted about 2.5 hours with a stop for a picnic lunch and we covered about 8 km.

There was still snow in parts of the forest, where there is not much sun

  1. Can't wait to get out and take a hike. I see you have trilliums coming up, time to start thinking about morel mushroom hunting!

  2. Syrup is done here; Wild ramps and such are up, with no Trillium sightings yet. Cold and feels like snow again today here on the Bruce Peninsula.

  3. Snowy her this morning but warmed up nicely. It was suppose to rain all day but it was nice. I was happy as the line was full. I have yet to see ramps here. I can't wait because my supply in the freezer is gone. beautiful pictures.
