Rainbow Routes Hike Club
| june 6 2015 |
Rainbow Routes is an organization in Sudbury, Ontario that creates and maintains trails and promotes healthy, active living. Once a month from October to June, they organize a social hike on one of the local trails. June was the Lake Laurentian Loop at the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area.
Parts of the trail are also a part of the Trans Canada Trail
The plan was to do the whole 10km loop around the lake. About a third of the way in, the hike leader stopped at a corner and let us know there was a bear with two cubs. We waited to see if they'd run off, but the cubs went up a tree. A detour was the safest option.
The scenery certainly wasn't a disappointment
Navigating the mucky spots
Even the sky had some interesting sights for us
I was thankful we didn't have to climb down this steep slope.
In the end, we hiked about 8km. The weather was perfect, with a breeze to keep the bugs down. Best of all, I made some new friends.
Thanks for checking out my newest adventure!
