Sometimes you have to stand alone to prove that you can still stand – unknown
Yesterday, we went for a walk in the heart of Mississauga, although it quickly seemed like we were in the middle of nowhere. The Riverwood Conservancy is a treasure that I was not aware that our city possesses. As stated in their website:
“The Riverwood Conservancy is a volunteer- and member-based charity that provides programs and services to the community in nature and environmental education, stewardship of Riverwood, and gardening and horticulture.”
The mission set out by the group is to create and maintain a public garden, park and nature reserve in the midst of a growing city. It is doing a wonderful job so far, and is truly a beautiful place.

As the craziest week in a long time comes to an end, I realize I have not had my camera out once all week. My “weather” has been cloudy with meetings and now a nasty cold keeping me away from something I really enjoy. So, I am posting a photo from a year ago to remind me what I’ve been missing!
Well, today I got my sun. And so we hit the trails again, this time to Erindale Park. Due to the fact that most of the pathways are susceptible to wash out, most of the trails are susceptible to ice coverage at this time of year. That was the only downside (okay, maybe the wind at times).
The river was flowing very rapidly, although at the sides there were areas with ice. That being said, there were a significant number of people fishing. We could not help but wonder what would happen if they lost their footing. It would be a most unpleasant experience.
