I know that the calendar says, Autumn is on her way but Nature says, she’s already here! The signs are everywhere. In some places you have to look carefully, and in others Fall shouts out at you. At Chickakoo Lake on Saturday, things were subtle. The tops 3/4 of the forest are lush and green but thinning. The leaves at the floor are starting to put on a pretty show. Soon the whole place will be ablaze in colour.
I adore Chickakoo Lake, there is a nice network of trails for every mood and level, fire pits and picnic tables, benches and little hidey holes. You can hike, huff and puff on your bike or even ride your horse. It’s the one place close to Edmonton I happily return to again and again. I never get bored with the place. Its different every time and always a joy.
