Hello Dear Friends,
Time flies when you having fun and boy it was so much fun at HILTON FALLS in MILTON ON, CANADA.
Although these falls are not too far from where we live it was nonetheless a long trip. It takes about one hour drive and then long walk, which is also part of the fun.
We were lucky that the weather was beautiful, just like on June 1st should be. Walking trough the forest was absolutely exhilarating and we enjoyed every minute. And of course I was trying to capture the beauty with my camera.
We even found some fun tee-pee someone build there out of branches. Definitely something for our boys to play with. To bad we couldn't take it home, lol.
And of course they climb up on the broken tree too!
Wild flowers are growing in the forest and beautiful lilac right at the parking lot. Tiny skippers butterflies were enjoying its nectar. Who can blame them. The scent was amazing.
What I was most surprised about was this beautiful ORANGE COLUMBINE that I know from my neighborhood and I photographed many times. I had no idea it is actually growing wild in the forest.
The other tiny beauty that is growing there is wild ANEMONE flower. It is a native Ontario plant.
At last I have for you is an Ebony Jewelwing - Black Winged Damselfly. It was lots of them bating on sunny areas and they were literally staring at us, lol.
Finally we came up to the falls and here is little bit of a quite interesting history. Apparently, this is a ruin of a sawmill build in 19th century, by Edward Hilton. Later he flee to U.S because of uprising in upper Canada. The second one who operated the mill was George Park in 1856 - 58 and John Richards in 1862 -67. Sadly the mill burned down in 1867 and little is know since then.
The main thing is that the waterfalls and the all the nature are still here! Also the ruins makes this place more interesting.
And these are all my children, two daughters and two grandsons. My joy 💖😍💖
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful week 💚🌞💚
