I was worried that this was going to be a washout.
The weather had threatened to be miserable, with rain and winds, and cool temperatures. And while there was a coolness in the air, the exertion kept us warm. And while the wind was blowing, we felt sheltered from it, for the most part.
But there was no rain. Only glorious sunshine.
The difference between walking the trail to the Tawadina Lookout three weeks or so was incredible. Where once stood colourful, leaf-laden trees now was bare and exposed much of the woods that were previously hidden. A relatively clear path was now carpeted in brown and yellow leaves: the red was all but gone. But it was still spectacular.
My thanks goes out to Andy, Christophe, Deb, and Krista for making this autumn photo walk a blast. Our steady climb was rewarded with an awesome view; our trek back down rewarded with some drinks and food.
Until the next walk, sometime in January.
