Skywatch Friday: The Pinery

On April 29th, on our way from Chicagoland to Niagara Falls, we stopped at The Pinery Provincial Park in Ontario. It was a huge and beautiful park and I was so sorry we did not have time to explore. We kept our visit very short but were able to walk the .8 km Pine Trail before hitting the highway once more.

The Pine Nature Trail

The trail lived up to its name. Beautiful tall pine trees reached up to the bright blue sky.

Not all trees were green yet, though. It probably won’t be too long now though, I imagine, before these are also full of leaves soaking in the sun.

Reaching Trees

The last part of the trail was flooded. We walked around the water and headed back to the car. The refreshing walk was a welcome break between many hours of highway driving.

    Lovely! I know the experience of not having as much time as I’d like to explore a place. Happy SWF!

    Love the blue and the trees. I can just imagine walking down that path in the last photo. Our dogs would love it there!

  3. What a beautiful place for a stroll. Sorry you didn’t get to enjoy it longer. That’s the trouble with a road trip, I can hardly get my hubby to stop for more than 5 min.!!! Thanks for sharing those beautiful blue skies.

    Looks like a beautiful pace to visit and I can imagine that it will be even more so when all the leaves are unfurled..

    I like the trees silhouetted against the blue sky..

    Great shots..
