Thanksgiving Bicycle Ride

Hello everyone, we enjoyed a glorious Thanksgiving weekend with cool temperatures and sunny skies.  We decided to take advantage of the great weather to take a bicycle ride on a nearby trail.  The Elora Cataract Trail spans some 47 km stretching from Elora to Cataract and is a popular trail for hikers, joggers and cyclists.  In the winter it is a snowmobile trail.

Lovely wooded areas with sunlight streaming into clearings.

The leaves are turning colour and falling.

 We ran into our neighbour walking her new puppy.  Rowdy is a 12 week old Australian Shepherd.

The water levels are managed by the Grand River Conservation Authority.  The Belwood River is part of a flood control management system.  There are cottages along the river.

So peaceful.

This old fallen down bridge has been here for as long as we can remember.  We have no idea how long it has been there.

Almost home!  

 Coming up to our old farmhouse.

 What an interesting fungus in one of our old maples along the road.

That was great excercise, now it is time for coffee.

~thank you for visiting!~
