This is a vibrant autumn scene I was very moved by. A person can relive the experience, the scent of leaves and the feeling of the wind through the year through a scene like this. We enjoy our hikes in the mountains near Fernie such as when I was inspired to do this on the way to a small lake surrounded by coniferous and deciduous forests. For a change, an early, killing frost followed by rain did not wash out and rot the colourful displays. On one particularly breezy day, the trees let loose their red and yellow abundance. Here I attempted to conjure up the feeling of walking up a steep trail to Silver Springs Lake, while leaves swirled and poured down on us.
