As I take it all in, I am reminded of the glory of the one who called it all into being. Perhaps this is why I love nature so much. It brings me back to the Creator, reminds me how incredible and majestic He is. His breath of life surrounds me from the blade of grass to the sparkling stars. And I'm apart of that! I am so blessed.
Each season brings with it, its own personal narrative. I must say Autumn reveals its glory in that setting in a way I have never seen before. It literally took my breath away. As we walked higher up the trail, we saw the red, gold and orange of the trees mingled together, reflected in the stillness of the water beneath it. I stood there taking in each shade and image. I snapped some shots but not a whole lot, I wanted to be present in the moment. I loved the hiking, the anticipation of coming through a clearing to see more colour, more beauty. The cliffs were high on one trail; 420 feet up. I confess being that high alarmed me but it was well worth the climb. I am ever so glad I had the opportunity to see it from that vantage point. It's something I will never forget.
We turned into the evening with the sunset and the crackle of a fire made complete by the vast canopy of stars above. The stars were brilliant up there.

|So beautiful from the trees to the reflection of them in the water.|

|I love this picture.|
|This one reminds me of some of the paintings of Tom Thomson.|
|This pic doesn't do it justice but the dew was sparkling on this spider web.|
