Terwillegar poplar

It’s 21C. Beautiful. Sunny. Hard to believe it’s October 20th. Not that it can’t be beautiful or sunny this time of year, but it’s usually not this warm. We’ve had a gorgeous autumn.

Drove to Terwillegar, which was like driving from mid-fall into late-fall. The poplar and birch trees dominate the park, and they’ve all lost their leaves. Street-level, other trees, especially the columnar aspens, are holding fast. It’s blue, yellow and red. In Terwillegar, it’s a thousand variations on brown. Still beautiful though, and hot. I was wearing shorts, and by the end of the 45 minute walk, Maggie was ready for a dip in the river. It was all we could do to keep her from running back to the car, but once she sniffed the water, she was game. It totally revived her. Might have been all the seagulls.
