A Stroll Through MacTaggart Sanctuary

I have a deep love for autumn; the colours, the smells, the crisp breeze - it calms me and I feel like I can breathe deep again. This time of year always makes me the happiest! I love feeing the temperature change as the hours go by; the fresh, coolness of the morning, the happy warmth of the sun by afternoon, the shocking chill of evening. Our maple tree is currently dropping its leaves and its magical watching them fall; whirling and swaying as they make their way down to cover the earth. The air thick of the lovely musky-sweet smell of foliage decay. I can't be the only one who likes that smell, right? The city is changing and I am in love. 

On of my goals this fall was to take an autumnal hike with the family. Fortunately, they didn't need much convincing and we found ourselves walking along the MacTaggart Sanctuary Trail one Saturday afternoon. The morning started off cold and rainy, but by the time we started, it was warm and I was ready to breathe in all that damp forest loveliness. With roots to step on, leaves to gather and collect, rivers to stand along, what more could we ask for?
