Forest Walks/ My World

Walking in the York Regional Forest

This photo was taken last week. Here the path is wide and gets plenty of sunshine, so last week it was clear of snow. But further into the trees where there's less sunlight the path was still covered with slippery ice. The forest hadn't wakened to spring yet.

Soon, though, spring flowers will decorate the area underneath the deciduous trees. I can hardly wait! And, YES, I will be taking photos.

Please note: Macro Monday is HERE.

What a wonderful way to spend the day!

Jacob said...

Looks wonderful. Our Golden would love to walk a few miles (as would we) on that trail!

PERBS said...

We have forest trails to walk through here too but most of our trails are wide paved areas which is a real blessing to those in wheelchairs or scooters or even us older folks who walk and need a steady step.

I look forward to more photos of your forrest.

So very inviting hiking path and landscape!
Thank you for your enjoyable, serene post!

Leena said...

Our golden Kiki would love to join you too :)

That looks like a wonderful place to walk. Not much longer until spring will be arriving full force, I guess.

Oh I can't wait for your spring wildflowers to blanket the ground. That's more like my type of walking path.

Louise said...

My first thought was that there is no snow. Looks like the perfect place for a walk.

There are few things as simple and yet so enjoyable as just taking a walk in nature! Personally, I love having a dog by my side, but if not, then I'll just enjoy listening to the sound of the birds. That's spring to me (in Sweden): hearing the birds again after a winter of silence.

Janie said...

Looks like a pleasant walk, even if the weather isn't quite spring-like yet.

Looking forward to seeing those spring flowers. Still looks cold right now.

Wow, and I thought when the sun is up the snow goes away...great back shot :D I would enjoy walking there too!

Christy said...

Beautiful shot. It is amazing how even the pine trees look so much more colorful when spring comes.

We met our first critter on our walk through the woods last week, a garter snake (scared the he... out of me!)and there is only little bits of snow now. With the rain of the last two days and no frost it will probably be gone by now. Nice photo and thanks for sharing.

Looks like a great spot to walk and I look forward to seeing the spring flowers. Thanks for sharing.

Babooshka said...

We all seem to be virtually walking this week. I will leave you to your lovely ramble, with camera of course.

Arija said...

The hint of spring in the sunshine and thawed places and the remnants of winter in others must make that a beautiful and memorable walk.

EG: Spring is fighting to stay but we had snow today. I await the greening of the trees.

SandyCarlson said...

That looks like a wonderful forest walk.

Small City Scenes said...

What a nice area to walk in. I know we have some nice ones too but getting there is NOT half the fun. MB

Becky and Gary said...

I can hardly wait too. The snow we had last night will be gone tomorrow, and then one day closer to the real Spring.

Looking forward to seeing flowers springing up everywhere!

2sweetnsaxy said...

I'll bet that will look like a completely different place when things start popping up all over.

antigoni said...

Great place for a walk. Excellent photo.

Judy said...

I can just see my Jake galloping back and forth on that path! I know what you mean about ice under the trees, though. That is what we have here. But soon there will be spring flowers!!

Small City Scenes said...

BTW---maybe it is April Fools Day in that spammers part of the world. I didn't fall for it but deleted it. heehee. MB

Paz said...

I'd love to walk here.

Rose said...

That sure is an inviting view!

Shammickite said...

I love walks through York Regional forest... so nice to see that the snow is melting.
But I still have some hard icy patches in my back yard. The weather can't quite decide what to do about them!
Frost on the roof this morning for sure.

Carletta said...

The sun's out and they're all bundled up - still very cold, huh!

I bet with wild flowers along the path it would be beautiful.
Looking forward to seeing your pics of them.

Erin said...

what a lovely path to walk along into the forest...thanks for sharing. have a good afternoon.

allhorsestuff said...

Fantastic walking place! I really enjoyed the size and it made it seem I was right behind you...on my horse, of course!

This looks like a great place to escape the bustle of daily life.

This looks like a wonderful place for a walk. Hopefully spring will soon arrive there.
