For this trip we returned to a route near Royston that we explored last November. It was an easier hike this time with the water hazards dried up. We enjoyed blackberries along the way, and the little people in Glover Park.

Off to Cumberland for this walk! There was a very light rain but the air was not smelling of smoke. Also, these trails were gentle so we avoided exertion. The start was Josh's trail. Plans were altered to avoid what might be slippery boardwalks on Monday's Child. So, the WTF trail became our exploratory. No boardwalks on this narrow trail. There were two groups which somehow managed to meet up at the marshy area of Josh's Trail. However, that was good for a photo op and physical distancing was still maintained. We were all glad to get out!
Our hike to Hairtrigger Lake was a new experience for most of us and certainly a first for the Hiking Group. Hairtrigger is a beautiful lake that none of us were in a hurry to leave. This was another hike well fueled by blueberries and huckleberries. At 18 kilometres and with lots of hills we worked hard for our scenic rewards.

Our Thursday walk was from the Exhitition Grounds through the forest behind ~ on trails that touch the river in places. We encountered instructors from the Therapeutic Riding Society preparing for their resumption of services ~ and thereafter had to watch where we were stepping.
