VIEW FROM THE FOOTBRIDGE: October – December, 2017

The footbridge over the Rouge River (Main branch) is part of my regular walk in the park. During 2017, I got into the habit of taking a quick picture each time of the view from the footbridge, facing upriver. The pictures, in addition to being enjoyable views, help to refresh my memory on the timing of the seasonal changes in the park.

As a result of the cold spell in late December 2017, the river surface was frozen and snow covered by the end of the year.

The following pictures cover the last three months of the calendar year, in roughly 2-week intervals.

In Eliza Howell, most of the trees remain green in early October and slowly begin to change during the month.

The autumn look fully arrives in November, the month of the big leaf drop.

The first snows usually come in December, as they did in 2017.

The freezing over of the running water in December, as happened this year, is quite unusual.

I started taking frequent pictures from this viewpoint only in the middle of 2017. My hope is to document all 12 months this way in 2018.
