Miggs and I went for a two hour walk yesterday morning to our favourite area a road with lots of woods and pretty scenery just a few miles or kilometers away from our house and is some what one part of the top of our valley , I took my camera this time and we both had fun . WARNING !! photo heavy .
Miggs is always so excited to go for walks as am I , we never know what we will see or hear in our valley ! which reminds me we heard a fox screaming as we started off the driveway .
This is the scenery from the road beside us and all this leads to what we call the back 40 of our house !
The field beside us is full of wild grasses , flowers , milk weed and just is soo pretty and smells wonderful to !
That ‘s our house tucked in there . You can just see Papa’s work shop roof ! The tree to the right is our big 150+ old maple tree it is soo big it covers half that side of the yard and our house from the road along with the cedar hedge our own little cove we have there !!
On our way up the road to our destination we have these two geese I assume they are a Mr & Mrs who like to take a early morning flight together over the field every day .
Aw yes , Miggs the tree hugger . This tree is her favourite tree to see squirrels in when walk past it every day !
A little wooded area of tall pine trees on our way there !
We have a little park in the main strip of the village that is beside the river and it is a lovely place to wonder !
Here we have the river called the Big Otter river and yes I have seen an Otter or two in here over the years lol !
This river is all natural as is all the forest and habitat that surrounds it ! It is a pretty tranquil place to sit and if your patient enough one can see some wild life in the woods like deer , racoons and more and if you can catch a glimpse of water foul amongst the trees either on the banks or in the water there are ducks geese Herrings and more and yes fish to .People here fish and travel this river in their canoes , this river travels all the way from up north from Hudson's Bay all the way down to Lake Erie a distance of over 400 kilometers or 248 miles long !
I found some fungi on a tree by the river bank and just had to photograph it as the lighting was pretty and strange looking as it was half in the shade and sunlight touched it to !
Pretty Wild flowers and grasses everywhere along the river banks and in the ditches by the roads .
Even odd bugs came out to play and enjoy the scenery .
The forest and overgrowth of bushes and trees have taken over the river banks this year !
Here we are up to the top of part of our valley ,the road called Chute line that Miggs and I love to walk and explore .
There are deep woods on either side of this road and one can stand very still and quiet and listen and all you hear is rusting on the forest floor of all kinds of animals .
There are swampy/ marshy parts , a little water falls hidden deep with in the area a bit tricky to get to but one day I will , you can hear the water fall from the road and with all the nature sounds with it , it is wonderful !
The ditches were just filled with so many beautiful wild flowers !
Miggs has a favourite stream or crick as I call it to drink from and paddle in there !
Well I don't want to over load ya all or make this to long so I will stop here and continue part 2 of our Favourite Place To Walk tomorrow ! Hope you will join us again tomorrow in part 2 .
Until then my friends ..
