Fall in Owen Sound (10/10/15)

During the Thanksgiving long weekend of 2015, I decided to make a trip up north to the city of Owen Sound (population 22,000) to take in some fall colours. However, they ended up being a little late this year, but I made the best of the trip. I hiked along the Bruce Trail in the West Rocks Conservation Area, checked out Inglis Falls (considered the Niagara of the North), photographed downtown and the harbour and took in an Owen Sound Attack hockey game.

Here's a few pictures from my trip...

Nice pics, Jay. I'm surprised to see a new growth forest in your first picture. I wouldn't expect a notable trail to be through woodlands that look like they were abandoned as farmland 40-50 years ago.

The trail is located on the city's west side off Concession Road 3. It's all in the West Rock Conservation Area.

Traffic flows on 10th Street in downtown Owen Sound. The historic Superior block (built in 1880) is on the left and the Seldon House hotel (built 1887, now Coach Inn) is in the middle and St. Francis Place (the city's tallest building at a modest 7 stories) is on the right.
