I will not get up there until next weekend. With work..work..and more work...it has left little time for me to go...I will be very happy when next weekend comes alnong.
So I am going to keep this short and sweet.
These are pictures that I took of the trail last summer...almost about this same time.
The blueberries are just starting to ripen, huckelberries are starting to form, and will be turning red soon.
The snow is gone for a few months, the summer flowers are starting to appear. The lakes are clean and clear and you can swim in them. There is canoeing for the lakes... the days are hot, and the woods are starting to dry out a wee bit. The trail is getting drier.
I can smell the forest, the trees giving up their sap (maple syrup anyone)?
The first nations people come up and strip some of the bark off the trees to use for weaving..(that is fun really).
I am looking for just the right burl to make myself a bowl...(there is a chore).
The frogs are singing their song for the evening, bees are buzzing like mad up there collecting pollen to make honey...(somewhere).
Baby animals have been born, and are playing in the fields (driving their mothers crazy).
The birds are chirping...nesting is over, they have kicked the babies out and are making them fly...it's do or die (grin).
This part of the trail is about 12 kilometers long..and is a good day hike.
So pack your backpack, make sure you have bear spray, flare gun, hunting knife, a fishing rod, camera, some extra clothes, socks, food...some water..and come for a walk with me.....:):):):):)
Be prepared!!!!! :D :D
