I'm continuing our hike in the park from my last post. If you missed it just scroll down to the next post below this one. Above is the pretty road that leads up to the campground at Mactaquac Provincial park. As I mentioned in my last post this is one of my favourite spots to hike in the fall with the crunch of the leaves underfoot on this golden pathway.
Looking back toward the picnic shelter and the sailboat marina.
I am tugging my hat over my ears as we walk back and head down the ravine again.
We followed a different trail up the creek bed. I think my girlfriends and I will have to explore these trails more next summer.
We crossed this sagging bridge.
Looking back from the bridge. It didn't break! :)
We climbed up the hill without stairs this time and found out if we'd walked a bit farther we would have found a nice easy path up the hill. Murray disappeared when we got to the top and took the path back back down to the bottom of the ravine. I kept calling him and he didn't answer and I couldn't see him anywhere. I was beginning to get worried but I knew he was trying to scare me. Silly man. Then I spied his orange jacket. You can see more of the Treego apparatus in this photo too.
Here he is coming up the trail. Much easier than climbing up the slippery steep slope! Next time we'll know better.
Me and my shadow as we leave the park.
The skies have been cloudy and it's been raw, windy and cold but the sun appeared this afternoon for a couple hours and, with no wind blowing, it was really beautiful even it if was only 1C.
Tomorrow I'm taking a couple of friends to McAdam, a former railway town about an hour from here, for "Christmas at the Station". The train station there is a national historic site and the volunteers decorate it beautifully for Christmas. The tour includes coffee, tea and light refreshments and the money from ticket sales goes to continued restoration of the station. I'll have my camera with me. :)
Tonight's sunset was pretty and the first one in almost a week.
I hope your week is going well. Thank you for visiting and for commenting on my posts.
