Let the record show…I did some hiking in 2015…
September 5, Taylor Head Full Meal Deal
This was a challenging hike. The pace Jim set was just short of a run and it had rained in the morning so all of the exposed tree roots were slippery as heck! From the map: http://www.novascotiaparks.ca/brochures/TaylorHeadTrail.pdf the total distance is about 17.3km. We did the loop sections in a figure eight pattern., stopped for lunch, and went to a pub afterwards for dinner. It was a great day. These are the hikes I love!
September 12, Memory Lane
Memory Lane Heritage Village is an award winning living history museum depicting coastal rural life in Nova Scotia during the 1940s, including life during and after the Second World War.
Costumed animators greet you, happy to share stories and knowledge of life in the 1940s. In the Webber House you can sit in the parlour, listening to the wartime broadcast. There’s an icehouse, and great photo opportunities in the barn and wood & metal workshop. Live chickens, sheep and cats were on the loose.
Unfortunately, I arrived with a 4G card in my Nikon…that filled up pretty quick. Rookie mistake. I resorted to taking pictures on my iPhone.
September 20, Crowbar Lake Trails
So this was the intro…“THIS IS NOT A HIKE FOR THOSE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH HIKING 18-20 KM OVER ROUGH, HILLY TERRAIN AT A MODERATELY FAST PACE. THE PLAN IS TO HIKE FROM THE TRAIL HEAD ON MYRA RD. OUT TO THE SALMON RIVER LOOP AND BACK. https://www.halifax.ca/trails/documents/CrowbarLakeHikingTrail_June17th.pdf
Meh! Not too bad at all…I did manage to get a few pictures but they were an afterthought and it shows.
October 3, Mystery Hike
This was another of Susan’s hikes. Always interesting. We started out at the Farmer’s Market in Wolfville, did a short hike at the Agricultural Center, back to a church in Wolfville for an African Drumming lesson, off to Blomidon Winery and finally to the beach.
October 10 Cape Split Fall Colors
A 17k hike on a beautiful Saturday afternoon…and on my way to Yarmouth…How could I resist?
October 24, Ladies Only Trail Build
This one was a lot of work…I was on the axe all day.
November 1, Polly Cove Ocean Hike
A great ocean hike between West Dover & Peggy’s Cove. Trails, rock walking, some steep rocky climbs, and some really cool caves.
November 11, Remembrance Day Hike at Cape Split
This was a great way to commemorate Remembrance Day. We had 2 minutes of silence just as we started out at 11am and lunch on the bluff.
