Enjoying Fall by Kayak

I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that this years paddling season was over. That is until my friend and fellow explorer James Kempf messaged me with an offer to hit the waterways one more time.

An overcast Saturday morning and favourable temperatures made the offer irresistible and so it was that I found myself enjoying the fall colours from the comfort of my kayak.

This area is blessed with numerous locations of which to explore by water and the added benefit of the waters reflection just makes it that much more spectacular.

We enjoyed the sight of geese and other birds, the quiet and the brilliant colours and crisp clean air that makes Autumn my favourite of the seasons.

Don't miss out. Before we know it winter will have arrived so be sure that you get out and explore. Whether by mountain bike, on foot or by water it is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the amazing scenery that surrounds us.

Fall in the Valley

As we say goodbye to summer we are treated to the spectacular beauty that is fall in the valley. If you haven't yet been out to walk the fall trails, now is the time. The colours are not at their absolute peak yet, but they are getting awfully close.

Walking the trail to the Dundas Peak yesterday, I met many walkers along the way, all out enjoying the views and the clean crisp air. 

I never tire of the view from the peak. With the town I love down below and the Spencer Valley on display, it is a beautiful sight at any time of year, but particularly right now.

If you haven't yet gone out I would encourage you to. You can thank me later. 😄
