A couple of weeks ago, I went on a 4 hour hike at Forks of the Credit Park. We left about 9:00 am in the morning. It was very foggy and I was kind wondering if the fog would lift by the time we got to the park, and if it didn't, would I be able to make it work. The drive was a little further than we expected but as we got closer to our destination, we passed a sign that said "Where Ontario gets real" and we figured that we were in for a great time.
As we got to the final stretch, we had to go up a very windy road, there was a caution sign that stated "Expect delays, fall colours ahead!" which we found to be a very clever on their part. But it was still very foggy and gloomy outside, so the sight wasn't too pretty at that moment to make the traffic slow down. Then, I kid you not, I blinked and the fog lifted. The skies turned blue and the sun came through the fall coloured trees like rays of gold. Ironically enough, we passed by slow because of how beautiful everything looked. The sign was not kidding!
The day turned out to be very beautiful at 22 degrees Celsius. It felt like July in the middle of September. Such a great day for a hike. The fall colours were so vibrant and it was so peaceful and quiet. It was definitely the perfect time to go capture the wonderful scenes of autumn. I had never been to Forks of the Credit before, but I'm glad that I have now. The park is pretty big with long trails and so much to see. There a part that consists of climbing down large stairs that aren't bad on the way down, but that kill on the way up.
Thank you for reading!
I hope you enjoyed these images of Forks of the Credit and enjoyed the little stories that went along with the adventure!
