Fabulous Winter Trees….
The Waterfalls at Hilton Falls Conservation area are amazing and fun to photograph in the best of weather conditions. In mid February was the first time Karen and I have been to the falls in the winter; mostly due to the three mile long trek in cold conditions and the slippery ice covered trail, which is better suited for snowshoes and cross country skis than my blundstones… (note to myself get some crampons or anti slip footwear next time) I only took one spill… landing hard on my posterior, other than my pride no real damage.
Even though the trip was slow and slippery it was well worth the hike. we got some great shots…
This shot taken on our way into the falls is of the walking trail; a wide, though icy and slippery swath cut through the forest. the groomed trail helps visitors to the park navigate through the terrain without endangering the public in this well travelled conservation area… The sun was hanging low on the horizon and squinted through the tree tops to form this beautiful sun burst as light splintered in all directions. such a glorious and fabulous sight.
On this trip we choose the main trail, as we know the ground off the groomed trail would be extremely dangerous in the deep snow. in the summer we have ventured through the off trail areas beyond the main path. it a rough terrain; full of steep mossy covered rocks and fallen trees, sharp stumps and loose rocks…some very deep holes and rocky crevices that could easily swallow and seriously injure the novice hiker..
