Winter at Todmorden Mills

I visited Todmorden Mills this week and snapped a few photographs. I noticed that the new interpretive signs have been installed. They describe the forest and display a helpful map for the short circular path you can take to view the forest and wetlands. The map is courtesy of the Todmorden Mills Wildflower Preserve which has the same graphic displayed on their website. One of the creators of the wildflower preserve was Charles Sauriol, the original Don Watcher.

Thanks for the link to the Charles Sauriol Wikipedia entry. From there I found his excellent memoir 'Remembering the Don'( at http://www.ourroots.ca/e/toc.asp?id=2797 ) which then led me to Two Little Savages, written and illustrated by Ernest Thompson Seton (at http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/1/3/4/9/13499/13499-h/13499-h.htm ). I've geotagged these entries around http://wholemap.com/map/area.php?area=TorontoBrickworks
