"Some time when the river is ice ask me mistakes I have made. Ask me whether what I have done is my life." - William Stafford
I took this photo of the Grand River behind our home this morning February 5, 2012 as I watched in awe as the sun rose behind the frosty trees across the river. Last week's flood had washed huge ice floes onto the river bank that glowed in the morning sunrise on the freshly fallen snow. Life is awesome!
The Grand River in southern Ontario, Canada meanders southwards from its source in Wareham near the Bruce Peninsula of Lake Huron through many towns and cities, including my city of Cambridge, before it empties into the north shore of Lake Erie.
In the summer it is a wonderful canoeing and kayaking river with few portages and beautiful scenery. The scenic Grand Valley Trail stretches 275 km. along the Grand River Valley - a fantastic hiking and cycling route with gorgeous photo opportunities at every turn; but my heart soars with these beautiful winter views. The raw uncomplicated beauty of the frozen landscape calls me to come out for a walk and closer inspection - I can't resist!
