Before I left the Coldwater area for the weekend I thought I would visit a couple other provincial parks. Both Mara and McRae Provincial Parks are located within 30 minutes of Bass Lake Provincial Park were I was camping. The morning started out cloudy and a little damp but it made for some beautiful atmosphere along the trail.
At Mara Provincial Park I was greeted by a large spider in its web blocking access to the trail. I’m always glad when I spot these on my hikes because the last thing I need is a face full of web and a freaked out spider crawling on me.
The thick forest trail of McRae Point was made spookier by the stormy sky but was a great lakeside hike although you don’t see the water for a good portion of your walk. A short little adventure to close a fun filled weekend.
