Where we often walk
There are rocks, streams and swamps among the trees, and lots of poison ivy in some spots - to be avoided by me if not the dogs.
It's mostly a mixed bush cedar, pine, hardwoods of maple, both hard and soft, and poplar, aspen, birch, typical for Ontario. But always full of birds and new things to see - flowers that have opened in unexpected places, tracks of deer, turkey, fox and coyote pacing the trail we follow. The dogs always find these very exciting.
Streams that trickle all year have small bridges for people and wheels... ferns abound in many spots and in others, many different kinds of vegetation.
Do you have some place nearby that is wild and wonderful to explore every day? I think we're pretty lucky and you are too if you do...
