Very Canadian snack break
After doing the Spruce Bog trail we went to the visitor centre to play Settlers in Catan again before we headed home. When we realized what time it was we walked over to have dinner in the restaurant beside the balcony. The entire time we were eating we could not figure out what one family was looking at off in the distance. We finally spotted afterwards that it was a bear.
We spent some watching the bear but then headed back to the trailer to play Settlers of Catan again before actually heading for home this time.Read more
A 1.5km loop that we've done many times. We decided on this one to do this morning because it's nice, quick and easy before we leave.
Last night we played our surprise from yesterday. The travel edition of the board game Settlers of Catan. I won once and Dad won twice. Everyone loved the game except my Dad, there wasn't enough action for him. Then I snuggled into my sleeping bag for the movie Along Came A Spider.
This morning we are relaxing a bit. Woke up to my Dad frying some bacon outside my tent. Which he was very excited for. Now we are once again play Settlers of Catan. The plan for today is to have pie-irons for lunch and pack-up. Then we are going to take the trailer and go do our final trail before heading home. The boardwalk by the visitor centre.Read more
We made a quick stop at Cache Lake to see where the hotel and rail station use to be. I didn't take any pictures here because there wasn't a whole lot to see. A small section of track was still there then just signs with pictures showing where things use to be. The was a bit of concrete left in a couple places as well. The walk was only 250 meters long.Read more
Driving along the highway we saw a bunch of cars stopped with people out of their cars taking pictures of something. We instantly knew it was either a bear or moose. It ended up being a cow and her calf. I was able to climb down the steep hill beside the road to get a good picture of the calf but the cow was always hidden behind trees.Read more
Peck Lake is a 1.9km walk around the lake. It's suppose to be an easier trail. It however was a completely muddy mess. We spent most of the trail jumping from rock to root to rock. I really enjoyed it after the last trails we had done that were completely cleaned up with gravel put down. It doesn't really feel like hiking when it's that easy. I don't think anyone else was a fan however. The one thing I didn't enjoy however was after taking the family photo I turned and well trying to avoid another photographer taking a picture I went straight into a tree. Scrapping up my right arm and giving myself a large ugly bruise.Read more
