Walking In A Winter Wonderland

“Ice, Ice, Baby”.  Why is it every time I think of  the word ice, that annoying song by Vanilla Ice comes on in my head.

We went for a walk on the weekend. To another one of the waterfalls on the Waterfall Tour.  This consists of seven waterfalls, all within a 45 minute drive from Kilbourne Grove. 

This time it was to Indian Falls.

It is approximately a one kilometer walk from the parking lot to the waterfall, through the woods.

It was a beautiful day.

Indian Falls is a horseshoe shaped falls, like Niagara Falls, but much, much smaller.

The ice at the bottom of the falls is getting thicker and thicker. I am not sure why it is more yellow than the blue that ice normally is. Pollution? Minerals in the water?

You walk along the stream going back to your car. This is Indian Creek which flows into Owen Sound Bay.

 You can see why I am a bit jealous envious of all those bloggers having some colour (or at least seeing the ground) in their gardens.  There is still a lot of snow in Owen Sound.

If you go down to the woods today!

We were up in Owen Sound this weekend, but no time for gardening (sorry grass!) My niece got married on Saturday, so we stopped there on way up, designed the flowers, drove to Kilbourne Grove, got ready, and drove back. Luckily it was an evening wedding.

The next day, Ian and my brother, his fiance and his daughter, went for a hike at Jones Falls in Owen Sound. It was a beautiful afternoon, although it felt like late September.
