We returned to the bike trails at Svoboda Road today to do some more fall hiking. It was a cool, damp day, but the clouds slowly lifted off the mountains and patches of blue sky appeared when we reached the clearing at the top. Lots of golden larches, and shrieking Stellar and Grey Jays darting along the trail.
Well, it’s mid-October and the snow level is at 1500 meters. We’ve had cold, rainy days with low grey clouds, and that means it’s back to shoulder-season hiking. I’ve returned to many of our spring hikes to see how the trails look in fall colours.
