Thanks to a detailed map of the walking trails issued by the City of Toronto I discovered this walk and - like with some other walks - I had to journey for a fair distance on transit to reach the 'trail head'. I rode on two subway lines and then a bus taking more than an hour all told.
Once on the trail, the view certainly was enticing! Remember - you can click on any - or all - photos to view an enlargement.
Along the path shown in this photo I encountered a bird which we never see out west - a Cardinal! A female was busy in a thicket gathering material for a nest that would be high in a tree.
I don't know what has happened to this photo - however, if you click upon the square in the text the photo will appear.
I wonder if I got some photos mixed up as the walk was in the spring and the leaves of the maple trees do not become scarlet until October.
Only a few feet away a young garter snake was doing the same thing!
By this time I was not walking along Duncan Creek nor German Mills Creek but the East Don River.
