Here we go. This is my 2nd hike challenge. I joined a beginners group in Cambridge, but sadly I wasn't able to join them on their hike. Later that day hubby and I were able to drive to Cambridge, but I hiked alone. The place is The Walter Bean Grand River Trail. There is a tower standing over there! Before it was settled by Mennonite pioneers, the area now known as Pioneer Tower West, was part of a large tract of land set aside by the British Crown in 1784 as a reserve for the Six Nations (Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, and Tuscarora). But anyway I'm not going to bore you with that! Though it was interesting to learn that part of history. You can click the link if you want to know more. Anyway back to the trail. It's an easy trail, but there was some ice and it was muddy too. It's an open field with forest on sides and the Grand River as well . I hiked through the bridge and then back. There was chunks of ice by the river and some houses near the bridge. I stayed for a bit exploring the river. The ice was very interesting! Then I hiked back to where I started and waited for hubby to pick me up. While waiting for him I had some snacks. If you are hiking make sure you bring some snacks. It was a quick hike for me so I just brought some dried fruits.
