A cool (0 to -1 deg C), crispy morning for a stroll around the paths bordering Mill Springs.Hopefully the map and pics tell the story. -- DeNNis.
|Parked on Deloume Rd behind Tim Hortons. Did a counter-clockwise loop taking a trail just below the Mill Bay Water Office and following various trails bordering the Mill Springs area as shown in the photos below.|
|You can see the MB Water Office from where we turned off |
|Natures Art. Fungi on the|
log piece beside the trail.
|Pretty tough slogging up some of these hills.|
|Some of these trails run right beside the properties.|
|If you look closely that is a sitting tree. But no one cared to sit.|
|Some trails are quite secluded. Looking back down this trail|
you can see some of the Mill Springs housing as shown in
the next photo.
|Houses not obvious in above picture.|
|This tree took the shape of a snake.|
|There is quite a steep gulley alongside this trail.|
|Lots of large ferns down there.|
|Always interesting to see the carvings outside this home.|
|The view from the latest phase of Mill Springs.|
|Above the above street is the Mill Springs Water Tower.|
|You could call these Frozen Puddle Art.|
|Near the water tower - for those who can't afford to live in|
|Heading down the trail from the water tower.|
|The ducks don't mind the cool temperatures.|
|Christmas is in the air.|
|Guess what comes next.|
