While up at Edith Lake during the warm spell last week, I noticed all the Red Osier Dogwood had sprouted one leaf right at the top of the stems, a sign of spring I don't think so looking out of the window today.
It's that time of year when you can finally see through the bush and undergrowth, a good time for grouse hunting. The last couple of days and a good wind just about cleaned the trees of leaves. A couple of heavy frosts and colder weather forecasts winter is approaching. Here is a shot of the beaver pond on the Bouche Rd.
Been down to Subury to visit family and take in the leaf colours. Just got there in time and couple of days later the best of the colours were over. Home for a couple of days and several cms. of snow today. Here is a pic just as it was starting.
First of all I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving. With the weather changing today and the winds picking up lots of the leaves are starting to fall. Cold weather possibly some snow in the forecast. Moose hunting starts on Saturday with many hunters going thru town yesterday and today.
First time in Gowganda was 1968 with the Dept. of Lands and Forests, doing a soil and vegetation study for the Wildlife Productivity Inventory. While here found the country amazing, the boreal forest the lakes at every turn and the air clean and fresh. It didn't take long back then to get the camera out and start recording some of the sights I'd seen. Since then with a few layoffs in photography its good to get right back at it. Putting your pictures on a blog like this forces you to go out and take more pics, which is the goal of this site.
