It’s a cold dark misty day today. We were up early to go to the season’s opening farmers market in town. We bought some fiddleheads to try to see if we can figure out all the fuss for these things.
We signed a petition while we were there. Our county is planning to expropriate 80 acres of an active, productive, commercial sugar maple forest to turn into this ridiculous recreational centre they are planning. It will include a defunct ski hill that is all run down. I have no idea how they are going to spend millions on building this recreational area, based on a ski hill – it doesn’t snow enough here to shovel it, let alone ski on it.
Anyway… we took a bunch of back roads today – got the blue beauty really good and dirty. It went through a lot of pot holes and some mini wash outs. It did well and saved us the gas of cruising around in the truck.
We went to find a trail Jeff heard of from one of his officers. It was supposed to be a trail down to a waterfall. I wasn’t expected a water fall like the one we found!! We hiked a very short trail along the cliff side. Jeff took the sketchy looking trail straight down to the water to get the photos down below. I stayed up top and studied all the fascinating moss and lichens that grow in the forests here. The spruce forests here are so damp looking – with green stuff hanging off the bark, and the forest floor is a thick bed of moss.
Here are some photos:
This was Jeff from earlier in the week. He had an unfortunate incident while he was practising his archery.
