Nature Walk on the Bruce Trail

Whoever is wise will observe these things, and they will understand the lovingkindness of the Lord. Psalm 107:43

501. for siblings who love each other

502. for this story-writing, store-making, adventure-seeking girl

503. for gorgeous, not-yet-crunchy leaves underfoot

504. for this organized, inspiring girl

505. for puppy-love

506. for a mom who drives over half an hour just to take a walk with us

507. for His light that makes the darkest places beautiful

508. for this word-writing, crown-wearing, squishy-hugging girl

509. for this observant, gentle-but-energetic boy

510. for stark contrasts in nature that catch our eyes as we walk

511. for the miracle of the mighty oak

512. for craggy rocks and soft pine needles

513. for plenty of space to run

To quote Ann, "If the heavens declare, then let's get out there!"

holy experience

What a beautiful Psalm and excellent reminder. I loved the little individualized nuggets that have recorded for each of your children.

And of course, getting to come along you all on your nature hike was delightful!

What a glorious day you had.
I work for the Bruce Trail Conservancy and would be thrilled if you would consider giving permission to our organization to use some of your Bruce Trail images in our educational or promotional materials.
The Bruce Trail Conservancy is the non-profit organization that works to maintain the Bruce Trail and secure a conservation corridor along the Niagara Escarpment.
We are always looking for ways to reach out to families and youth, and your images - particularly the sibling image, and your mother with her dog - are lovely shots of families enjoying the Bruce Trail.
Please give me a call or send me an e-mail if you are interested or would like some more information.
You can also find out more about the Bruce Trail Conservancy at
