Today’s journey started in the Iroquoia section much later in the day than I normally head out on my hikes. We were supposed to get thunderstorms this morning in my end of town and all we got was a few minutes of rain. By noon the blue skies had appeared so I got myself ready and headed out to the Dundas area. The problem with the lack of rain was the humidity that hung in the air. I barely got half a kilometre down the trail before I was sweating up a storm. The start of my hike took me down a road and into a forest on the edge of a golf course. Once inside the trees I found an interesting looking moth perched on a leaf.
The trail was fairly flat for most of the hike and luckily wasn’t too strenuous since it felt like walking though water. Towards the south end of the trail a beautiful red barn could be seen.
As I neared the end of the hike I had the luck of running into a white-tailed deer and this time the camera was at the ready and the golf course beyond the trees deterred the deer from running too far.
The deer and I played a little hide and seek before it finally gave up and headed further down the trail before disappearing entirely. I followed along but had no luck relocating the deer. I suspect it ran across the course to the trees close by. Walking out of the forest and onto the roadway I stopped to get some shots of the clovers that grow alongside it before heading home for the evening.
