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.
