Since its been awhile that I’ve hit the Bruce Trail I headed over to the Hamilton area to check out the trail near Waterdown. After all the rain that has fallen this month the trails are especially muddy but the rivers are impressively big, which makes for great waterfall shooting. This time around I had other ideas on what to photograph along the trail. So after parking in the lot next to Grindstone creek and waterfall I went in the opposite direction. Crossing the road I headed up hill through a small meadow and then into a forested area. I was greeted by numerous flowers making their homes on the escarpment rocks.
Now I’m not one that knows the names of most flowers but I’m hoping to learn as I go along my journey on the trail so please forgive my simple descriptions. Columbines are prevalent here but there are many others – there are small white flowers and a couple of varieties of small purple ones too. Trilliums also inhabit this area but they were already past the blooming phase.
