Fall in Cornerbrook

I'm up in Cornerbrook for a few weeks.  That's on the West coast of Newfoundland (about a 7 hour drive out the Trans Canada from St. John's).  Fall seems to have arrived up here, unlike in St. John's!  I went for a little walk today and needed to share the fall colours!

Margaret Bowater Park, Cornerbrook

Fall in Cornerbrook

The landscape is much different here than the East coast of Newfoundland.  The forests are more like those in the Maritimes - a lot of mixed growth and deciduous trees.  There are still rocky hills, but they're less barren than the East coast.  So in a way, Cornerbrook kinda reminds me of home this time of year.

Today I went for a walk in Margaret Bowater Park, just around the corner from where I'm staying.  The trails are beautiful and groomed.  The path runs all along the river as you can see in the photos above.

I saw this little sight on the trail and it reminded me of a book from my childhood: A Child's First Book of Poems.  I know at least two readers who know what I'm talking about!

One last picture.  I got new glasses a few weeks ago.  Here you go:

Hope this post wasn't too random for you!  You'll hear from me again soon.

Those foliage images are amazing! Wish our trees looked like that, but they're a little washed out this year (so far).

The fall colours are incredible, I might have to make that my desktop backgruond, and add a little life to this office ;) Love the glasses too!

The poem is appropriate for a Runty Mouse Blog
the picture of the tree stump is the one......

I'm looking for a house said the little brown mouse with one room for breakfast, one room for tea, one room for supper and that makes three.
One room to dance in, when I give a ball, a kitchen and a bedroom, six rooms in hall. by Rose Fyleman. circa 1985 from Aunt Charlotte
