While we were in Harrison Park last week I got another chance to ride the One-Mile Trail. Now paved, it's a wonderful meditative trail for me, through a forest with a number of really big old trees.
We stopped at the bridge first, to check out the fish. It seems we have missed the salmon run; we need to be here in later September for that.
We did see one big fish. though it's probably a steelhead rather than a salmon.
There were a number of dead salmon though, probably finished their battle upstream and starting the next generation, so now they're simply done.
There were lots of leaves looking colourful right there at the bridge, but...
Mrs. F.G. saw the flowers and decided that she would deadhead and search for seeds rather than walk in the woods. I was on my own!
I headed down the wooded trail following these two women. I saw a lot of people out walking on the trail that afternoon.
Immediately I stopped to get a picture of this giant old Sugar Maple. It's bigger than it looks in the picture.
And these two a little further down the trail.
Rode under these tall sentinels above me on the steep slope.
And found a few more colourful leaves at the far end of the trail.
I like the views of the trail disappearing around the bend.
Passed right beside the massive trunk of this old Hemlock.
And looked up at some more colourful leaves. All in all a very memorable half hour for me!
hat a delight to be able to ride down there, the trail looks so wheelchair friendly, and those colourful leaves, truly beautiful .ReplyDelete
Beautiful fall colours.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed your photos. Lovely Fall colours.ReplyDelete
The colors in our part of southern NH are not as advanced as other areas. That said, your fall foliage is very nic to see and I also like the curving path view.ReplyDelete
So happy for you that you got to go for your 'walk'. What a beautiful place and the colors are fabulous.ReplyDelete
Such a nice trail.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed seeing your photographs, the Autumnal colours are wonderful.
All the best Jan
What a lovely journey through the woods. Thanks for showing it!ReplyDelete
Looks like a wonderful area to spend some time and enjoy part of the natural world.ReplyDelete
That place looks pretty wonderful.ReplyDelete
What a nice trail, hope Mrs FG got some great seeds! Such pretty trees!ReplyDelete
You had a great ride. There's still lots of color there.ReplyDelete
I think that is so absolutely great that you can get out on a smooth surface like that for a wander through the forest and especially at this time of year with all the Fall colors. It has to be extra extra special for you due to your mobility limitations.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful trail, so much to see and experience. Thanks for taking us along with you.ReplyDelete
That trail is so wonderful to see. I am sure you had a great ride through it all. Your river shot reminded me of the Jordan River in Israel. Seeing the salmon would be interesting. The colors there are so great and I liked seeing the flower garden. Thanks for sharing the adventure.ReplyDelete
What a great trail! I love looking up the trunk of those big trees. Your Hemlock picture was my favourite today. I'm sure Mrs. FG had an enjoyable half hour too in that lovely flower bed. :)ReplyDelete
Like you, any country road or trail that has hills or winding curves are favourite pictures for me. It leaves a lot to the imagination "where does it take us?"
I like all the big, mature trees and fall color!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful place and incredibly beautiful, captured expertly by your camera, and shared with your admirers. Thank you so much.ReplyDelete
