The Kissing Bridge Trailway is a 45 km rail trail that runs between Guelph and Millbank. I joined it for a few kilometres just west of Elmira.
The only birdlife was a Chickadee harvesting Wild-cucumber and a few distant raven screams. The botany, as always, was fascinating and I enjoyed trying to get sharp photos in dimlight.
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. – Robert Frost (1874–1963)
So nice to have you visit our ‘hood, Miles!
