Monday August 24, 2009-Ken Reid Conservation Area

First of all, I'd like to congratulate my cousin, Bob and his wife, Deb on selling their house in Ottawa. They sold it themselves through Grapevine. They're hitting the road on September 24th.

It was supposed to be sunny and beautiful today but I woke up to clouds and we didn't have much sun till around noon. I did my walk/run this morning although it was tough. Too much food this weekend! I have to learn to just say no!

After we had lunch and a nap, we headed over to the Ken Reid Conservation Area. We've been there before but we've never done the Point Trail. It's almost 1.6 miles return up to a point with McLaren Marsh on one side and Sturgeon Lake on the other side. (See map - the trail is the blue marked trail out to the point.)

We saw this Mennonite cart along the way

It was a nice trail but there was quite a bit of tree roots so you had to be careful where you were walking. Here are some trail photos.

Our neighbour left this morning. He also had a Titanium. Today when we got back there was another Titanium parked beside us. It's nice to see Canadians buying Canadian!

I went outside to read and they came over and introduced themselves. That doesn't happen all that often up here but these were nice, friendly folks.

By the time we got back to the RV it was nice and sunny so I hope we have more of this kind of weather this week. Our high was 24C (75F) with a nice breeze, perfect for a hike.
