My mother splurged on a parking pass to all the local conservation areas, so we've been making an extra effort to go for more walks. I love stomping through the woods and discovering new trails.
I never seem to have a chance to do outfit photos anymore, so I made my mom stop and snap a few pictures of me. The lighting was really too dim for outfit shots, but I did get one half-decent photo. I'm wearing my favorite black beret, cat-eye sunglasses, wide-leg wool trousers, and a sweater I made last year based on a 1930's design. I know, I know, cat-eye sunglasses should not be worn with a 1930's style sweater but I was feeling rebellious (Am I the only one who worries if her sunglasses match the decade of her outfit? haha)
I've said it before, but autumn is by far my favourite season. I love the crisp air and the smell of fallen leaves.
This particular conservation area has a seriously intense set of stairs. Normally I climb up it, but this time we went down and I took a picture at each bend (i.e. each photo does not include the previous section, so you get an idea how high up it goes).
Whew! I get tired just looking at the photos. But when you reach the bottom you are met with a lovely beaver pond (alternatively, when you reach the top you get a spectacular view from the lookout).
