So, we'll continue with diversionary tactics.
Yesterday, Eddie, Margaret and I took a lovely walk in Echo Heights, a forested area in nearby Chemainus. Echo Heights has been the subject of a great deal of controversy between developers, the municipal government, and the local citizens. I've been hearing about it ever since I moved here, but had not hiked in the 52 acre forest myself. Margaret, familiar with its trails, suggested we go together.
|Here's the trail!|
|What a perfect day for a walk in the woods!|
|The ferns are lush and verdant.|
|Look, here's a trillium seed pod!|
|Awww, what a wonderful idea!|
|The swamp - eerily beautiful.|
|A bear tree? Looks like it is almost ready to topple!|
|Birds were singing everywhere.|
|Indian Pipe - one of the few plants without chlorophyll|
|Feathers on a decaying log|
|Happy, happy Eddie!|
Thanks for joining us - let's go back again soon!
