It is a sheer joy to hike where there is no need to be alert for leeches, snakes and ticks. Supposedly, ticks in summer, but that seems a long way off! I'm delighting in walking in forests so different to home. The birch, firs, luxuriant green mosses, and a splattering of still unmelted snow, are so foreign to me. My joy has no bounds when you add in the chance sighting of a squirrel, chipmunk, woodpecker and the dulcet tones of unseen tiny birds,
1. Bonshaw Provincial Park, 20 mins from our accommodation.
On arrival, we were disappointed to find the trails closed, but thankfully locals assured us to continue on.
Yes, the ladybirds are also enjoying the mossy undergrowth.
The difference 5 days makes.
Mussels growing on the low tide shoreline.
3. A portion of the Confederation Trail near Winter River. The Winter River trails were the agenda, but alas, our directions were not sufficient to find the trailhead.
Rural views with a most welcome blue sky that was to later change drastically.
After 4 kms, we arrived at the site of Bedford Station, and made this our turn around point.
First signs of a new rainfront approaching.
Life is good!
I would love to read your comment.
