Autumn has always been my favourite season. There's just something so comforting about the weather, the colours, the food and the smells. Last year, while in Seoul, I really missed out on the autumn festivities in Canada, and was feeling rather homesick. But a friend was nice enough to take a photo of some trees in Toronto and send it to me.
This year, I've really indulged and made up for lost time. We went on a hike yesterday through Rouge Park, in the east end of the city. It was so beautiful and refreshing to be surrounded by nature in all its glory. In Korea, it's very easy to enjoy watching the leaves change because there's mountains no matter where you look. As long as you've got a clear view of the horizon, you're bound to see some peaks.
In Toronto, there's a lot of parks and wooded areas where you can go take a walk and indulge in nature's mastery. But Rouge park -- which can easily be compared to New York's Central Park or London's Hyde Park -- is the only place where the Ontario Green Belt reaches Lake Ontario... so it's rather special.
We also lucked out with the weather yesterday. It was warm for autumn temperatures and the skies were a shade of blue that could easily be compared to southeast Asia's deep blue waters. Yes, that good! I was pretty happy and felt like kid again, as I indulged in fresh air, and fall's bounty.
Here's a photo collage from our afternoon out. I'm glad I had a chance to take these shots because now you guys can see what I've been talking about for so long!
