Jun 12, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Pure

Callander Crags, Scotland, taken on October 31, 2015

Hiking makes me feel in sync with nature and is one of the most rejuvenating things to do, even though hiking tough hills make me sweat. But the end results are always worth the effort. The hike up the Callander Crags was probably my favourite Scottish hike so far, and even before I reached the crags, I passed by an area of woodlands where rows and rows of trees stretched beyond my sight, seemingly endlessly. It seemed like another world was hidden behind the trees, unknown to our dimensions. There was not another soul around, and not a sound was heard. I immersed myself in that moment of awe, and I let myself indulge in that pure and perfect eeriness.

October 12, 2014 – Crothers Woods

This afternoon I finally got around to hiking in Crothers Woods down in the Don Valley. Through layers of fall foliage, I explored the meandering trails that cut across the woods and the valleys, meeting many hikers and mountain bikers along the way. Coming to a fork in the road, one must decide to continue onto the easier path or the harder path. Which path would you choose? 😉

June 06, 2014 – A green mile

My dad and I went to Guildwood Park as part of my hunt for hiking trails in Toronto. The trees provide a beautiful green canopy for our walk and formed a green tunnel leading into the woods, but the green walk also brought with it annoyances in the form of mosquitoes. Shame on me for overlooking the fact that I’d be covered in mosquito bites. Insect repellent is now ready for the next hike!
