Mono Cliffs

we started with sun, but it disappeared later

view at the cliffs

still places with colourful leaves

saw something move in the leaves

went around to look at the front
a porcupine 

a rock to have lunch

there are a few areas with water

lots of milkweed

we could see very far today

it is Halloween today

Cleaning out the calf pens

Once a year the calf pens are cleaned out

Today was the day

a bit cold but mostly sunny

pen for pen

this barn works so well, the liquids go in the pit underneath
during cleaning the calves are on the slotted floor
the part where they eat

Waterdown hike

Only 5.5 km but what a beautiful hike

Parked the car and biked to the beginning

Biking turned out to be the most difficult part of the hike

It was  a lot up and down

over the top, but still so beautiful

this picture will be on the cover 
when I make a Bruce trail photo book

crossing this road was a bit dangerous hwy 5

Creditview road

We went to a memorial service in Brampton

on the way back there was an accident 
and we were stuck in traffic for 45 min

saw the whole Creditview road from big houses
to developing areas

to farmland

ending at Belfountain

Around the Farm

The other day I walked around the farm

the cows are outside in the daytime again

Easier to get them inside when they are slow to go to be milked

All the crops are gone, fields are empty
just this bunch left so there is something on my picture

Fall is definitely here
