|Just a few seconds of momentary distraction led to this. It's not us!|
|He drove a long way, trying to get out of a deep ditch, before hitting head on with a driveway approach.|
|The RCMP officer arrived and I then left for home.|
The driver told me he was heading home to Chilliwack to prep his suitcase to head to his original home in Scotland for a three week visit with family and friends. This accident put a damper on his day, for sure.
|Although it is late fall, there are still some green leaves.|
Tuesday proved to be a beautiful fall day. The sun was shinning, the air was crisp and it was a fitting day to discover another hike. And we did just that!
We discovered a new trail in the Aldergrove Lake trail head that took us well over two hours to complete. It's a mix of dense forest and open meadows with steep up and down trails that really offer a nice walking workout.
|Jeanette is looking for leaves to step on. She loves the crunching sound of dried leaves.|
|A steep downhill (or uphill for those walking opposite from us)|
|Rain forest ferns thrive in this climate.|
|I had Jeanette hold up this tree so that I could take this photo. Always nice to have a partner who is so willing to take on the heavy lifting! Hey, she is no slouch!|
|Walked out of the thick forest trails and on to this open meadow. What a treat!|
|We ended up on the far side, after a round about trail walk. The mountains in the background are snow capped.|
|.....and we were back in the ticket. Out of the blue was this massive rock. It's interesting how (or why) it is the only one on the entire trail.|
|This was the trail. We'll be coming here often, that's for sure. It's only two minutes from our home.|
I'm holding down the fort here. With the President's Cup (PGA GOLF) being held at the Royal Melbourne in Australia, I spent six hours watching the Golf Channel last evening. Although I would rather be there following the golfers (or better yet, playing that course), it's great fun to follow them in High Definition too. The tournament (as with them all) is held over four full days of golf.
While I was busy working on reorganizing our substantive 'online' music library, I looked out to see this! YIKES!
|Yep! That's wet snow.|
|I guess we could call this a 'skiff of snow'.|
I have to sign off to prepare for the President's Cup Golf coverage. I do have a few errands that must be taken of before I can devote the precious time with the Golf Channel.
|I would rather be here - live and in person - but the Golf Channel will suffice.|
