With a gorgeous day on hand, a friend contacted me to see if I was game to hit the hills. I was keen for the shorter drive so we could be in the playground sooner and spend longer there. The further up the Cox Hill Trail we hike, the deeper the snow became. I was surprised at how much snow was still there! Or should I be surprised, I believe I say I am surprised every time I am up here in spring.
I don't think these are from the Easter Bunny!
My friend was eyeing Cox Hill being able to see the trail in the snow and was looking to see if she could see others on it. She was game to continue exploring, so we went for it.
We climbed a bit higher and found our way through the trees.
We could see the turn off onto Powderface Road a way off over there.
The signs stated this is where you cut down Christmas Trees on Saturdays and Sundays in December.
This was our view.
That's Cox Hill in the middle.
A mere few minutes after leaving the meadow, the Conservation Officer drove along.
By this time though we were walking along the edge of Powderface, good timing.
After a short stretch along here we were back at the Parking Lot gearing down.
My attitude was adjusted, my spirits lifted, I was happy & content.
Truly I am grateful for every single second I am afforded the opportunity to be "out & about".
