Along the Bow River in fall

Along the Bow River in fall
These two trees always catch my eye when I go on a walk with friends to Lafarge Meadows, at the eastern end of Fish Creek Park. The walk goes along the Bow River - well-known for good fishing! This photo was taken on 4 October 2015, and enough leaves were still on all the trees to give a golden glow. The Beaver chose a nice spot to built its lodge : ) We didn't see a whole lot on this walk, which was an afternoon walk instead of a morning walk, though we always enjoy seeing a Bald Eagle. Two people on the walk were lucky enough to see the rare (in Alberta) Hooded Warbler, though I have seen it there since then.
