When we leave home it is clear and dry, but once again we are surprised to find snow on the ground as we head north and arrive at our starting point. That might also explain why Simon is wearing shorts. He assures us he’s fine.
This 18K section fills a gap created when we did a previous two-day hike south from Collingwood. Closing the gap means we have now hiked the entire distance from Queenston to Beaver Valley. We are on track to finish by September 2015.
This hike has a bit of everything: farm fields, a conservation area, provincial park, rocky overlooks, mud, streams, stiles, bridges, road, bush road and snow-covered forest and field. Really, the pictures say it all. What better way to spend a sunny November Sunday?
