Hike #14 Cyprus Lake

Hike #14
Cyprus Lake Trail/Grotto/Indian Head Cove/Bruce Trail
Bruce Peninsula National Park (Tobermory, Ontario)
December 2, 2015

An adventurous day driving up to the Bruce Peninsula National Park!Ā 

My boyfriend had never been up north that way, so we decided to take advantage of our previous plans and head up! (We were originally going to meet up with a walking group in Wiarton, but traffic on the 401WB expressway was backed up two hours… ugh!)Ā 

The BPNP is one of my absolute favourite places to hike and to just be. The trails are clearly marked, the air is fresh, there are trees and trees and trees, and the views along the cliffs of Georgian Bay are just simply amazing. I could never get bored of this area.Ā 

Being December, we didn’t have a whole lot of daylight to use, but we sure had almost the entire park to ourselves – at least, along where we hiked.

I kept my bear bell on most of the time we were on the trails. You just never know, especially when I saw quite large tracks in the mud. (They turned out to belong to a Beethoven dog – that was a relief! Iā€™m going to look into learning more about what tracks belong to what animals now…) šŸ™‚

Hike #12 Apsley, Ontario

Hike #12
November 29, 2015
Apsley, Ontario

Today’s hike wasn’t so much of a pure hike, but we were outdoors for a couple hours collecting a few geocaches! It was another nice wintery/fall afternoon with sunshine for parts of it.

Our original plans of hiking at Silent Lake were crushed… the park is closed during the winter but I didn’t look it up before we got there, so geocaching was the back-up idea!
