"Philosopher's Walk"

This walkway meanders through part of the U of Toronto campus from Bloor St south to Queen's Park and follows the pathway of Taddle Creek which has been buried under here since at least 1884. It is one of my favourite walkways in the city with its canopy of mature  oak & beech trees and also a lot of recent plantings and landscaping. As you can see the leaves hadn't started changing along here a week ago.

Yep. it still looks very green there. It's green here too, except in a few select spots. :)

It does look like a nice place for a walk, considering it's Toronto! (Tongue firmly in cheek!) :D

I love walking in this area. :)
The trees in my neighborhood are still surprisngly green. I guess they also don't want to admit fall is coming.

That does look like a great place for long walk.

How interesting that the path follows the same room as the old filled in creek.

Surely those oaks should be way more autumn colours by now Pat, they're so beautiful I can see why you love to walk here.
