The Bruce Trail

Sunday, November 08, 2015

Burlington, my home town.

Here are a few photos of the country side,

taken from hiking trails near our home.

You can see the Escarpment on the horizon.

My kids now go on these trails, bringing my grandkids along, and

reminisce about the day long hikes I took them on during their teenage days.

Crawford Lake boardwalks

The Bruce Trail, Canada's oldest and longest hiking path, as it

meanders along the escarpment.

It is 840 km long, with over 440 km of side trails.

Rattlesnake Point

We live less than 25 minutes from Rattlesnake Point.

Great for hiking, rock-climbing, wildlife viewing and snowshoeing,

the escarpment is a magnificent outdoor haven with more than a

hundred parks and scores of conservation areas,

protecting its natural features and incredible variety of waterfalls

plants and wildlife.

We enjoy going on several of the trails, especially now, to see the Fall colours.

Soon the snow will fill in the pathways for cross-country skiing,

and snowshoeing enthusiasts.

Hope you enjoyed "My backyard" emoticon
