Nary a flake in sight (well maybe one or two) at the Beaver Hill Ski Club, km 76.4, August 30
Traversing the ski hill & applying lessons learned in July. Namely, 100% buy in of the way to go.
Snack time! One of many funky, fantastic fungi found on this foray.
??? Can’t remember what this was or why I took the pic…
Four peas in a pod?
Down the escarpment. Thank you Bruce Trail volunteers!
Relieved to be safe and sound.
Yet another unique naturescape.
Are we at least half way through?
Somehow we always manage to find fallen trees for our picnic seats
Barren forest floor
Abandoned apple orchard – ripe for the picking
Smiles aplenty to sit on a bench in the middle of nowhere
Our requisite stile pic
Freshly mowed hay
Our requisite bridge pic
… leading to more than one soaker
Split rail fences throughout the hike – reminders of the backbreaking work to try to convert to farm land
With some success in places
Finished! One of our easiest hikes with few up and downs of the escarpment. Perfect, near the end of summer weather – warm, not humid, few mosquitoes. Ended at John Muir Lookout, Epping. Km 93, Beaver Valley, another 16.6 km behind us!
John Muir Lookout. But no Zaxes to be found! Better luck next time?
