The day started out with a big breakfast. Nick made raspberry waffles with breakfast sausages and bacon. I had seconds on everything. I caught up on the latest episodes of Ghost Adventures and American Horror Story.
It’s my birthday. It’s also my first marriage anniversary with my husband. The plan was to take the canoe out, but the grey skies and winds were not making that a favourable choice. So the hubby suggested we head out for a hike instead. The destination, Milton. We would explore some new territory. Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area.
It was beautiful scenery from the edge of the escarpment. Lots of fall colours still to be seen in our part of Ontario. I loved the walk trough the forest. The smell of fall and the sound of kicking up the fallen leaves.
When you purchase entry at any of their conservation areas, you’re also entitled to entry at any of the other 7 conservation areas. So to get more bang for our buck, we took the short drive to Hilton Falls Consevation Area.
It was about a 4 kilometre hike to the falls. At the end of the trail they had a large fire pit, where they encouraged you to sit an have a fire. It was quite busy so we didn’t stay long. We just climbed down to the falls for some pictures, and then made the return trip to the car.
We returned home and cooked up a barbeque dinner and followed it up with some cake, and had our own fire in the backyard. It was the perfect day.
There are so many parks and trails in that area that we will definitely be returning to explore some more!
