Postcards from the Bruce Trail

A writer's journal and photography blog documenting 900km of hiking End-to-End on the Bruce Trail from Niagara-on-the-Lake to Tobermory, Canada

To Crawford Lake – Postcards from the Bruce Trail 14

Sunday Sept 7, 2014, sunny 17°C
Blind Line & Brittania Rd Burlington (km 95.5) – Crawford Lake (km 108.5) 3h59m (13.0km Total to date 188.9km )

 

It was such a perfect, beautiful day for hiking that I didn’t feel like doing any work. On the drive over to Blind Rd. I decided it should be a day to muzzle the inner writer, and just enjoy the walk. I let Ian know we’d be letting the photos speak for themselves today. And so here they are, as chosen by Ian, in the order he took them.

You’ll find more of Ian’s photography on his Flickr photo stream – I might be biased, but I’d say he’s pretty talented.

Next weekend, we will leave Iroquoia Section behind, passing under the Highway 401, and into Toronto Section.  200km before Thanksgiving!

Until next time, Happy Trails!   Louise & Ian
