Hilton Falls

Halton conservation area

The way to the Falls

Last long Thanksgiving weekend was sunny and bright. Probably the Nature presented to people last warm breath of Autumn. Although there are no a lot of colours around for now the beauty of Fall is everywhere. People spent their weekend to visit surrounding Parks and recreation areas. There were numerous events organized in that places. But mostly people enjoyed the weather on hiking and bicycle trails.
In Halton region that is located to the west of Toronto there are seven recriation areas. Each of them has something special to see and enjoy. One of these places is Hilton  Falls. It is situated on the Niagara Escarpment and really good for summer and winter occasions. But the most spectacular part of the Park is small waterfall.
Small but Beautiful

March 1

The first day of Spring is not a real spring. We still have snow and frost. However there are a lot of small things showing that spring is coming.
Have a nice weekend my Friends.

At the beginning of March it is still wintry. Officially we are going to meet spring on March 20.

Still winter on the Pond

Ice on the Pond

Sunday, March 3, was cold and grey day. In the morning it was quiet in High Park. The biggest pond in Toronto – Grenadier Pond – is still under the ice. The ice on the pond is still pretty solid, but along the bank it is already soft and full of water like a sponge.

Weak ice

Ice and water

People trying to use the last chance to enjoy skating on the natural skating rink but for the birds it is hard time. They are suffering from cold and lack of food. It is really pity to see them on the ice. That day I met swan’s couple sitting on the cold icy pond surface and warming up themselves. From the faraway it was looking like two small snowdrifts. Swans have hidden their heads under the wings and legs under the body. But then with the close looking I have found feathers motion under the wind. Oh!

Walking further along the trail I’ve met ducks in the open water. Some of them have painted boring and grey landscape with their green heads, yellow beaks, and orange legs.

Life and food is in the open water
