We wanted to take advantage of the fall colours while they were still at their peak and headed to the Terra Cotta Conservation Area this morning. We got there just before 10am and the parking lot only had a few cars. We decided to follow the Terra Cotta Lane (about 3.5km around the lake) and took our time taking in the sights, listening to the rustling of the leaves, taking some photos and enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of the Fall. Best time of year.
Hmm. which way do we go?? 🙂
Look at that reflection…wow
Hardly anyone on the trails at this time of the morning…

After the hike, we headed over to Downey’s Farm Market and had some lunch (grilled cheese, chili and warm apple cider), checked out the pumpkin patch and picked up some goodies at the market. We got fresh baked pumpkin doughnuts and two kinds of fudge: chocolate and maple bacon. Everything smelled and tasted great. It was cool today and we had some snowflakes – didn’t last very long though. 🙂
Back at home sampling the goodies:
