This time of year is perfect for hiking on any trail, regardless of where you are in the Northern Hemisphere. The heat and humidity of summer has abated, and the plague of mosquitos and black flies has died away in the cooler temperatures.
Since we started our Trans-Canada journey back in the spring, we have remained focused on the trail in Southern Ontario, and although the terrain doesn’t have the magic of the mountains, or the song of the oceans, it’s particularly beautiful at this time of year.
These are some of the sights from the trail during the past couple of weeks.
I’ve updated our status, and so far this year we have covered 587 km (365 miles). It’s considerably less than I thought we would cover, but as Helen often says, every day spent out of doors is a good day. In other words, I’m not worrying about it.
This is what our journey looks like to date. The black lines indicate what we have completed of the green trail.
I hope the weather holds for many more weeks so that we can continue to enjoy the beauty of autumn in Canada.
