The Ice Broke

Another day out and about with my friend Nigel as we explore the Rockwood Conservation Area. This park is located along Hwy 7, west of the Georgetown area. Our mission today was to check out the park and find some caves that are somewhere on the property.

This is not the first time we’ve been here. Typically when we visit this park we’ve concentrated on the ruins of an old mill on the property but we won’t be visiting this section today. You can see those posts here and here. Today we explored the rest of the park to see what we’ve been missing out on during past visits.

Along our hike we found a small waterfall and some interesting tree stumps. No caves. Nigel had to be back home early and we still had some kilometres in front of us before we reached the caves. At this point we decided to call the hike and focus on photographing the southern section before heading to the car.

We noticed a couple of geese slipping and sliding along the frozen lake. One found a not so solid spot as the ice broke under him/her as it attempted to get closer to its mate. It didn’t seem too perturbed about it as it continued on its way looking for some nibbles. The life of geese.

And then we saw it….

…the lone cave.

Our last few minutes we scrambled to get some shots of the cave and then headed back to the car. Short days suck when you really want to explore. Soon Rockwood..we will be back to explore more of your caves.
