Pat & I decided to go for a hike Sunday afternoon. The Bruce Trail runs through Hamilton along the escarpment, with lots of waterfalls along the way. So we made our way to Scenic Rd on West Mountain, found some parking & a trail. We quickly discovered Princess Falls.Our trail was at the top of the falls (where this photo is taken - Princess Falls is actually taller than this little cascade appears) & we walked along the mini canyon carved out by the water. There wasn't much to see though, it was prettier along the trail. Berries were everywhere - we saw them in every colour:
red: orange: green & yellow: white: black:& this cool blue-ish-green (sorry about the blurry photo - old camera):Shriveling fruit was everywhere (and just as worthy of a photo):Indeed, it was the mouldering fruit on the ground that made me look up:A pear tree! The first one I see in full fruit. I picked my fair share & plan on making a crisp. The first time I make a pear crisp - I'll let you know how it goes!
We usually make strawberry or raspberry, my mom makes a delicious apple crisp (though Pat isn't a fan of baked apple) & I recently made an awesome nectarine & raspberry one - what's your favourite crisp flavour?
I'm planning on going apple picking this fall - something I've actually never done. Have you ever been fruit picking? If so, what kind of fruit?
