It was a race to get out the door this morning to see the sun rise. I am so thankful to have this municipal park so close to home and for it to still be open. Nose Hill Environmental Park has become a go to place to begin my day in a way that brings cheer and color. The last time here I walked down those stairs, this morning I began my hike with a climb up them. As you can see they do warn us to physical distance. Once again that was not a concern for my two hours here.
It took a few minutes to get up this stair master.
I did not want to miss what was in front of me nor what was behind me.
I kept stopping to admire the developing color scheme.
the sun peaks over the horizon and a new day dawns
the view ahead from the top of the stair master
There is still ice in spots and I enjoy being inventive with it.
Crack a piece off, hold it to the sun and voila!
I like how it turned the whole piece such a pretty color.
That whole piece is three inches in height.
Next comes the magic carpet! No it's not magic, it's just Mother Nature doing her thing!
The whole hill top was turned into a beautiful carpet of glow. As you can see the moon is still up.
I'm on fire for you baby!
"A quarter for your thoughts!"
I covered 9.6 kms this morning and this was my route.
