Seasonal shifts on King Mountain

A few weeks ago, Hazel went on a hike in Gatineau Park with her Nana and Grandpa. More specifically, they hiked King Mountain. All was still green then. This weekend past, we decided to walk the same route to see the changes...and they are everywhere!

Someone's winter cache.

Hazel drawing the trees as she sees them....smiling and covered in many different colors of leaves.

The view from the top...farmers fields and bales of hay.

Beautiful little mushrooms...I wish I knew more about mushrooms. I am not sure what makes a good year for them but I do know that I have noticed many more this year than in previous ones.

I have mentioned this many times before, but I am so thankful to live in such close proximity to those Gatineau Hills. It's the next best thing to living in them.

  1. What beautiful photos...I went to Gatineau Park a lot as a child (I grew up in Orleans) and in fact my husband and I went on some bikerides there on our honeymoon...so it is a place that holds a very special position in my heart.
