Baird Trail on Thanksgiving

I had forgotten about these photos for awhile.

On Thanksgiving Day, Sue and I went for a little rural ramble. We drove along Wolf Grove Road which is always a bit of a treat in autumn. As we neared Middleville, Sue opined that perhaps we should take some backroads down toward Balderson.

It was then that I remembered the Baird Trail, which we at stopped at in spring. The small parking lot was almost full with parked cars as quite a few people were out enjoying the splendid day. We found a space and began our stroll.

But we had planned to drive and hadn't thought of walking, so Sue hadn't brought proper footware. And she fell once, so we kept the walk short.

Our spring walk had also been short because the ground was still waterlogged. So we much return someday to walk the whole thing.

But what we did see was pretty doggone nice.

The last shot posted is amazing. Love the colour. Makes me think I should keep walking shoes in the car until it is time to keep snowboots in the car.

Nice to make the most of the sunny weather before even more snow arrives.

What a difference a few days make. After looking at your previous post with snow and now back to fall! These scenes are beautiful and Sue's blue jacket adds a nice touch. Sorry to read of her slight fall.

You reminded me that your Thanksgiving is a month before ours here in the U.S. I'm glad you got out to enjoy the day since it would appear, from your last blog, that those Fall days may end soon. Lovely photos.
