Caledon Trailway

On the way home from my accountant’s place I stopped for a quick walk in Caledon on the Caledon Trailway.

Since it is still spring and the plants are slowly coming back this was the best view along the trail with all the evergreens.

Opeongo and the Two Rivers Trail

We’re on the hunt for wildlife. Each year we hope for a glance of a fox or even a moose but so far we have been unsuccessful and today proves to be no different.

Its chilly out and the wind by the water makes it hard to stay there long. The sun helps but only when away from the biting wind. Our walk/drive down Opeongo Road is unsuccessful so we all decide to hike the Two Rivers Trail.

This beautiful walk through the woods brings us no closer to finding any wildlife. Are the animals hiding from us? Most likely. Or we’re just hiking the wrong places.

Old Woman Bay

Our second day in Wawa before heading out to Lake Superior Provincial Park we stopped at the iconic goose statute located on the edge of town. This goose is huge! I’m standing at its base as it looms over me.

Our first stop in the park was back to Old Woman’s Bay. Our hope was to see some substantial waves that the area boasts about this time of year. We were a little unlucky on that front as the waves coming in were on the smaller side but look at that beautiful light.

We did see some remnants of trees that looked like they’d been tossed about by those elusive large waves.

We had a couple stops planned today and one that we hiked up to was Sand Falls. While on our hike it started big fluffy snowflakes fell from the sky.

We wanted to try to get a photograph of the sunset as the skies decided to clear a little later in the day. We raced down to Sandy Beach just as the sun was hitting the edge of the horizon. I quickly shot this photo as I got out of the car.

Overall a great day in the park exploring. With one more day left to explore we are still hoping to find some of those waves.

Island Lake

On a whim I decided to visit Island Lake in Orangeville. Its not too far of a drive and it gave me something to do with my day as I was feeling unmotivated.

I didn’t spend much time here (as I said, I was feeling unmotivated) but I did walk along the two sections of boardwalk and played around with some infrared while I was here.

And that was the extent of my outing. Just some bridge shots. Okay there were a few others but they were on the blah side and not worth editing because it was that kind of day today.

The Grandmother Tree

This last day of our trip we headed out early to check out the lighthouse at Lion’s Head and see if we could get a shot of the waves crashing. It was very windy but the waves were not as high as expected. I guess it was just wishful thinking on our part. I now have lots and lots of shots of waves crashing into the beach or the lighthouse. (Delete key is ready folks..lol)

We headed back for breakfast at the B&B before heading out for a hike along the bluff at Lion’s Head.

The first section of the trail was nice and wide with room for lots to hike but eventually that turned into more of the typical Bruce trail type hiking trail.

I’m not complaining – look at these fantastic views. From this vantage point we can see Lion’s Head way in the distance.

Sadly after our hike it was time to pack up and go home. We made one last stop. When we stopped at Jones Falls on the way up we had both taken some photos of a large tree. I call it the Grandmother tree or Big Mama. Both of us had decided that we hadn’t done it justice with our original photos so we headed back on the trail to photograph this beautiful tree.
