The Ed Millar Side Trail (part of the Oak Ridges Trail at Seneca College) has switched from a green trail to an orange path as autumn commands the scene.

A Garter Snake takes advantage of a warm and sunny mid-October afternoon before its hibernation begins.
A 10"-wide maple leaf grows from a 6' sapling (above, at left) which has a diameter of only 3/8", about half the width of my thumb. Remarkable, yes?

An old abandoned wash tub, in the woods near the trail, is a reminder of the farming origins of the Seneca College property.
